Monday 19th May - Tuesday 20th May, 2003, Hornton Grange, University of Birmingham
"Well worthwhile. Lots of practical tips and ideas for implementation"
"The sessions had clear objectives, concise content and (the delegates) had time to reflect more deeply on the issues"
"The huge diversity of teaching methods covered....and dividing into small groups in each session"
REGISTER NOW - SUBSIDISED PLACES AVAILABLE!
The quotes above are typical of those received from delegates at this residential event last year. Its aims are to help newly appointed teaching staff in Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES) learn about and evaluate a range of approaches, methods and resources for learning, teaching and assessment in these disciplines. By being discipline-specific the event will complement any generic-based institutional courses that delegates are attending or have taken. It will also provide an informal opportunity for delegates to meet and share experiences with other new GEES staff from other institutions.
Workshop sessions at the event will include (subject to demand):
* Learning outcomes and assessment
* Supervising research students
* Resource-based learning
* Laboratory classes
* Small-group teaching
* Integrating skills development
* Linking teaching & research
* Work-based Learning
Who Should Attend?
Anyone in Geography, Earth or Environmental Sciences who has started teaching in HE in the last three years who would like to develop and improve their teaching whilst extending their continuing professional development.
What is the Cost?
As this event is being heavily subsidised by the LTSN Subject Centre for Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (LTSN-GEES), delegates will only be asked to pay £50, which will include one nights B&B, a conference evening meal, lunch on both days and teas and coffees. Delegates are however expected to meet their own travel costs.
