New to Teaching in GEES

Tuesday, 13 May 2014 - 11:30am to Wednesday, 14 May 2014 - 3:30pm
RGS, London

This is a free two day event for HEA subscribing institutions and a cost of £150 for non-subscribing. Refreshments, evening meal and lunches on both days will be provided. However, bed and breakfast accommodation is not included. This event is for academic staff who have been teaching for less than five years and who would like to develop their teaching skills in the context of their own discipline. It is designed to complement university-run courses offered to all new academic staff.

This is a practical, activity-based workshop that will provide delegates with the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with GEES colleagues from across the UK. During the event, you will have the opportunity to get to know others across the GEES disciplines and explore ways in which you can continue to network and to work together after the event. For further details and to book visit the HEA web page.
