Microteaching is a technique used to enable teachers to practise an element of their teaching skills in a ‘safe’ environment of peers and tutors who would act as ‘students’ and observers of the teaching practice. In this course a few GTAs will teach a 10 min segment of a learning and teaching session (tutorial, seminar, lab demonstration, lecture, fieldwork) to an audience, after which they will receive peer and tutor feedback.  

This course is also a rich environment for GTAs to attend as audience where they can learn and improve their own practice by observing their peers teaching and by providing constructive and effective feedback. The participation as audience would be particularly useful for GTAs who are not yet teaching and/or want to prepare for their own microteaching session, those who want to learn and practice doing peer observations, as well as for those who want to give support to their colleagues doing a teaching segment.  

You can attend this course as a presenter or as audience. When you register, you will need to indicate whether you are registering to attend as audience/peer reviewer (15 places) or teaching/presenting (5 places). 

Those who will be presenting will need to prepare their teaching segment. Those attending as audience will need to prepare by reading the observation criteria that will be used to provide feedback. All details will be sent after you have registered.
