This webinar is open to Postgraduate Research students and is funded by Queen's University and delivered by the University of East Anglia.
Seminars are often the first thing a PGR student is asked to teach, yet they are not the ‘easy teaching’ that many in higher education seem to want them to be. This session will respond by providing coverage relative to both the preparation and delivery of excellent seminars. This will include the importance of being better prepared and more knowledgeable than the students (whatever the topic), laying out the ground rules for interaction, stressing the importance of engagement and discussion, appreciating the intellectual, social, and affective needs of the students, rendering the discussion concrete, and strategies for integrating student responses. Some generic example exercises/activities for use in seminars will also be provided and discussed. Teaching seminars is difficult and this session is designed to help!
Please note: All University of East Anglia training sessions will open for booking three weeks before they are due to run.
