Teaching workshops

The Humanities eLearning Team run a number of workshops in conjunction with other staff across the University.

Where students are coming from: Student experience and teaching at A-Level

Tuesday 11 February 2020
14:00-16:00
University Place, 5.210
Led by: Dan Foulder (Teacher at Loreto College)
Suitable for: Anyone interested in the Student Experience and transition from A-Level to University

In this session, we will discuss where students are ‘at’ when they finish A-Levels and start undergraduate study. This will include monitoring of different groups of students, including widening participation students and those with additional needs. We will explore how this can be used to inform teaching and support the transition from sixth form to university.

The talk will reflect on:

  • Lesson types and planning in A-Level teaching
  • Assessment and monitoring progress of different groups of students
  • The importance of learning outcomes in lessons
  • How the transition from school to sixth form is managed and how this could inform the transition to university study

Suitable for: Anyone interested in developing distance and online courses
