History: New to Teaching Event

This free event is aimed at both early career historians (and others in the humanities) already in a higher education (HE) post and those already part-way through their postgraduate study, who are looking to enter the profession as a teacher and researcher.  In the past few years, a greater emphasis has been placed, by the government, HE institutions and students, on how academics deliver and demonstrate ‘teaching excellence’.  Consequently, one of the usual requirements for being appointed to a lectureship is an understanding of best practice in teaching, learning and assessment.  This is then followed up by a probationary requirement of achieving formal recognition through a teaching qualification and fellowship of Advance HE (formerly the Higher Education Academy).

The programme, which looks at a variety of subjects from curriculum development and assessment techniques to teaching strategies and job applications, is designed to be interactive.

Location: University of Manchester
