Intended for people who are taking over the delivery of an existing lecture or course of lectures, this workshop will focus on the presentation rather than the design of lectures.

course details

This interactive workshop is intended for people who have agreed to cover one or more lectures for a post-holder.  The assumption is that participants will be delivering an already established lecture, drawing heavily on the post-holder’s materials, rather than designing their own lecture.  Thus, the focus is primarily on presentation rather than lecture design per se. Participants will:

  • Consider the purpose of lectures and their relationships with labs, tutorials and independent study
  • Appreciate that lectures are a means of promoting learning
  • Consider lectures from both student and lecturer's perspectives
  • Identify elements of effective lectures and what lecturers can do to support students' learning in lectures

Intended for 

DPhil students and postdocs who will be delivering one or more existing lectures - i.e. for which the materials have already been established.
