Teaching Bites

The next set of Teaching Bites sessions will start on 16th March 2016. The sessions running are:

Wednesday 16th March, 3-4pm,  S10 –  Working Towards Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning

This Teaching Bite will enable delegates to explore how they might weave interdiscplinarity into their teaching practice.

  • Participants will have the opportunity to: explore examples of interdisciplinary practice from a national and international perspective
  • consider how these examples might work in their own context

Tuesday 22nd March, 10-11am, S10 – Teaching in an Internationalised Context

Given the increasing numbers of international students, many universities have explored ways of internationalising the curriculum to meet the changing needs and expectations of their students. This Teaching Bite is a taster of what that could look like in your own context.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain knowledge of current practices in internationalising the curriculum in a UK context
  • Examine their own practice and identify potential for change

Tuesday 29th March, 11-12, S10 –  The Research-Teaching Nexus

What is the research-teaching nexus and what does it mean for you? This Teaching Bite offers a chance to explore the possible connections between your research and your teaching, as well as the potential for your students.

Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Examine different models of the research-teaching nexus
  • Work with colleagues to explore what model could work in your discipline and your context

Wednesday 13th April, 3-4pm, S10 – Student Mobility 

This Teaching Bite will be of interest to all staff considering ways to develop effective student mobility opportunities for students to stay or study abroad.

  • Consider different types of student mobility approaches across various disciplines
  • Reflect on the benefits and impact of student mobility for the institution and student learning experience
  • Explore the barriers to student mobility in your own institution and identify strategies/approaches to help you to plan for change

An additional session entitled Academic Writing led by Dr Jennie Osborn will also run (details are still to be confirmed).
