Who should attend?

New and experienced staff who would like to review and develop their teaching practice and presentation skills.

This workshop offers an opportunity to design and deliver a short (ten-minute) ‘microteaching’ session and receive constructive feedback from a group of peers. In this context, your peers will be people with a teaching role at Imperial who will also be presenting during the workshop. The aim of the workshop is for you to consider and evaluate your own practice and learn from the practice of others in a supportive environment. You might choose to attend this workshop to review and receive feedback on a sample of your existing teaching, a session that you are teaching in the near future, or a presentation might be giving to a non-specialist audience.

Your own microteaching session will be filmed (for your own use), so you will have the opportunity to review it after the workshop.
