FW: New-to-teaching events for STEM subjects





Bookings open in new-to-teaching events for STEM subjects


Starting teaching in higher education can be a challenge whatever your background, age, qualifications or discipline.

What we all have in common is the wish to do the best for our students, to convey our passion for our discipline or profession, and to challenge our students as well as ourselves to become more effective, critical, enquiring and reflective learners.

During 2014-15 the HEA is holding discipline-specific and theme-specific new-to-teaching events as part of the HEA enhancement event series, with four in either STEM or STEM-based disciplines. These sessions will especially benefit early-career academics or those in teaching only roles, e.g. teachers engaged in ad hoc delivery, postgraduate and PhD students involved in teaching, and learning support practitioners.

There is no charge for delegates from subscribing institutions.
