Introduction to demonstrating in practical classes

For postgraduate students who will be taking on demonstrator duties in practical classes, we offer a half day workshop as an introduction to the role. The aim of this workshop is to introduce participants to the underpinning principles and practices of teaching in and facilitating learning in practical classes. Demonstrating requires technical knowledge of the subject matter, but it also requires an intellectual understanding of some teaching and learning theory, as well as the attitude to want to enhance the student experience.
