The Society is collaborating with the Geography and Education Research Group (GeogEd) to create a new forum for meeting, sharing, collating, and supporting teaching and scholarship (TeaS) in higher education.
The forum will provide an informal but regular meeting place for HE staff at all career stages and will primarily focus on teaching and scholarship within geography and related disciplines by providing support, advice, encouragement, and resources.
With more institutions focusing on teaching and scholarship (or teaching and education) career pathways, it is hoped that the TeaS forum will create an inclusive and supportive network of colleagues that speaks to the challenges and opportunities such a career path provides. Meet-ups will be structured around community needs, as well as featuring guest contributors to discuss or advise upon key aspects such as, promotion, building a national profile, and pedagogic research.
Over the coming academic year, we invite you to join us in this forum for discussion and TeaS advocacy. The structure will be online meetings held on the third Wednesday of each month, at 2.00pm-3.00pm, starting on 20 October.
To find out more, contact Dr Martin Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) or join us at the first forum meeting on Zoom.
