The next session of our ‘Introduction to Education Practice‘ course will run from the October 17th– 19th 2017
This is evidence-based, practice-based course, is aimed at doctoral students who are or will be supporting teaching activities.
The course has four main aims:
To introduce students to theoretical and practical knowledge on adult learning, with special emphasis on the UK context.
To introduce students to the HEA UKPSF standards and the dimensions of Areas of Activity, Core Knowledge and Professional Values that underpin teaching and supporting learning.
To familiarise students with BU’s services and schemes for teaching and learning, as well as with leaning technology tools.
To provide students with opportunities to discuss and reflect about their particular teaching goals, and to offer a collegial space where they can receive feedback on their teaching practice.
Topics covered in the course include:
• The student experience of learning.
• Planning student-centred learning.
• Working in large and small groups.
• Assessment for learning.
• The potential of learning technology.
On the final day we celebrate our students’ learning by engaging them in a micro-teaching task, where they receive feedback and recommendations to improve their teaching practice.
The course is supported through online materials in myBU.
Taking the course as a stepping stone, an optional follow up session will be organised for those students who would like to apply for Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy through the internal scheme TeachBU – a great way of enhancing the doctoral studies experience in preparation for academic posts.

The course will be led by Dr Jenny Hall (CEL).
