Teaching: Reviewing first steps and developing the next
An opportunity for you to review your first teaching experiences at Oxford, and to develop your next steps.
This is an opportunity for you to think about your first teaching experiences at Oxford and to discuss them with others who are also new to university teaching from within MPLS.
Areas covered in this interactive workshop will include:
- Strategies for identifying your teaching strengths and areas for improvement;
- Ideas for addressing common issues in teaching;
- Practical suggestions for how to evaluate your teaching;
- Signposting to useful teaching resources and development opportunities at the University.
All participants should have completed a small amount of teaching within the University of Oxford (e.g. a tutorial(s); small group teaching session(s); a laboratory demonstration(s) etc.). The workshop is discussion rather than lecture based; you should therefore come prepared to discuss your teaching experience with peers during the workshop.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- reflect on their teaching experiences and identify areas for further development
- articulate teaching challenges they have faced and be able to identify possible solutions
- identify suitable tools for evaluating their teaching practices
- know where to find further information about teaching development opportunities at the University.
PGR and Research Staff who have recently had their first experience of teaching in MPLS.
