Introduction to Supporting Student Learning

COVID-19 update

You will be aware that the University has suspended all face-to-face teaching for the remainder of the academic year. Please see the related FAQs from The Academy.

In its place, we will hold online webinars supported by online activities to be completed through the VLE. If you are already registered on the programme, you should have been notified about the next steps through an announcement sent via the VLE. Please check the VLE regularly for updates.

This one day introductory workshop is designed to address some of the essential skills and understanding needed for effective teaching at university. This is an interactive workshop, where participants will have opportunities to address their own questions and concerns about teaching throughout. It assumes that participants have little or no previous teaching experience.

The day will cover:

  • Introduction to Learning and Teaching in HE
  • Facilitating active learning in different contexts, from small to large groups
  • Supporting learning through authentic assessment and feedback
  • Effective Communication in a diverse classroom.

This day also forms the first part of the FLTHE programme.
