Who should attend?

This introductory workshop is designed for academic and NHS staff who are new to teaching Faculty of Medicine students, or who have not attended teaching and learning workshops before. It explores the relationships between teaching and learning and introduces participants to standard ways of structuring teaching and actively engaging learners: including online. It examines the strengths and weaknesses - from the perspective of learning - of lectures and various types of small and large group teaching. The workshop has been adapted for online delivery and addresses the same intended learning outcomes as the face-to-face workshop.

Please note that this workshop requires attendance at a 90-minute ‘live’ session (as per the specified time and date details) along with one hour of asynchronous work to be completed in the week before this and one hour to be completed in the week following it. You are required to participate in all three parts in order to complete the workshop.

NB Teaching and Learning in the Faculty of Medicine has considerable overlap with Introduction to Teaching for Learning.
