In the academic year 2014/2015, the TLU, in response to feedback from consultations with staff, organised and held the first of its Conversations on Teaching & Learning Seminar Series. An emerging theme in the feedback from staff was how useful staff found conversations with colleagues were where common issues were identified, teased out and best practices shared.
The Conversations on Teaching & Learning Seminar Series were therefore designed so as to provide a mix of input from a facilitator with the opportunity for discussion/ networking with colleagues.
When do the Conversations on Teaching & Learning Seminar Series take place?
The series typically run at three stages during the academic year – autumn, winter and summer. The seminars are held at the start or end of a semester, prior to classes commencing or once classes finish, i.e. before week 1 or after weeks 12.
So watch this space and keep an eye out for notifications via email, the TLU website news and what’s on sections or on social media.
How is the series structured?
Each series consists of several seminar/workshop held over a two week period with each seminar/workshop typically lasting around 2 to 3 hours. The seminars/workshops are designed to be a mix of input from facilitator and opportunity for discussion/ networking with colleagues and always promise to be stimulating and thought-provoking for participants.
Who should attend these workshops?
These sessions are offered free of charge and are open to all CIT academic staff. Each session aspires to be relevant to both early career and experienced lecturers.
