Target Audience: Research Assistants, Research Associates and Research Fellows with little or no teaching experience.
Delivering ad-hoc lectures: How have others done it?
Learn about the realities of delivering lectures alongside their research commitments;
Hear experiences from researchers (from Humanities, Engineering and Science);
Reflect on positive and negative experiences (through a practical focus, with tutors);
The session is aimed at Early Career Researchers wishing, or expected, to deliver ad-hoc lectures and teaching sessions that may be unrelated to their own research or on core subject material. It will offer a helpful Q&A session as well as summarising collective wisdom on how to best manage student (and staff) expectations.
The session will be interactive and explore various ways of delivering a lecture (as opposed to giving a talk) and how to gauge if a lecture was well-received. Attendees will gain practical advice on how to approach teaching preparation and the practical and administrative processes involved.
