Support for teaching and learning

Many postgraduate students teach alongside their studies, and it is an important part of postgraduate career development. We have a growing bank of resources for use in teaching and learning in HE, which you can use to support your teaching. This sits alongside our resource bank for those teaching at school level.

We also offer training workshops for those new to teaching in geography and related disciplines.
