Delivering ad-hoc lectures: How have others done it?

Attendees will:

 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.
