If you are undertaking the teaching of a social science topic such as hospitality, leisure or tourism in the UK for the first time – or perhaps your teaching skills need freshening up after some time away from teaching – the Higher Education Academy (HEA) offers something that can help.
The HEA’s new “New-to-teaching in the Social Sciences” workshop provides delegates with the opportunity to learn and discuss effective ways to balance the various academic duties of teaching, research, administration and support. Attendees at the day-long workshop will explore the effective use of learning technologies and examine different models of curriculum development and approaches to assessment and feedback.
This event will be particularly relevant to early career academics, teaching fellows, technical staff, associate or visiting lecturers, postgraduates who teach, researchers and others who have been teaching for less than two years. It will also appeal to those interested in applying for Associate Fellowship or Fellowship of the HEA.
Throughout the day there will be an emphasis on practical teaching skills along with opportunities to share best practice and network with other individuals in similar roles and at similar stages of their careers.
