New to Teaching in Higher Education

New to Teaching in Higher Education

Introduction

New to Teaching in Higher Education is a one-day practical workshop aimed at supporting and inspiring those who are just beginning their careers in higher education. The day is specifically designed to take you from ‘surviving’ to ‘thriving’ in your teaching practice, help you to pick up teaching tips, get to grips with teaching methods, and respond to the curriculum demands so you can really inspire your students.

Learning outcomes

Making the transition into a teaching role in higher education can be difficult. New to Teaching in Higher Education explores ways in which you can navigate that transition, and allow you to explore, share and learn alongside your disciplinary peers with a view to enhancing your teaching practice.

The following quotes, offered by some who have attended previous workshops, shed light on the workshop’s benefits:

“A very good imparting of knowledge and resources that can be used by new lecturers, held in a supporting and accepting environment in which to share opinions and ideas.”

“An excellent day with a good group size, which helped discussions. Very well facilitated. We covered a lot of ground, and it gave me a lot of food for thought.”

Course content

The New to Teaching in Higher Education workshop makes use of key pedagogical approaches, while also engaging with the HEA’s tools, frameworks and resources. It allows you to compare notes, experiences and ideas with a supportive network of peers – the kind of expertise you can take away and put into practice in your classroom. It also enables you to accumulate evidence that can be used in support of an application to become a HEA Fellow.
