HEA – "New to Teaching Toolkit"
The Higher Education Academy (HEA) has just launched a new online New to Teaching Toolkit for staff who are starting out on, or returning to, a Higher Education (HE) career which will involve teaching. It includes guidance, literature and exercises in a number of areas including assessment and feedback, as well as large and small group teaching. In doing so, it draws upon the experiences of new and experienced academic staff from across a number of disciplines and presents their reflections on the challenges and opportunities regarding teaching in HE today. Colleagues undertaking the New Lecturers’ Course will be particularly interested in this set of resouces, but there is plenty here for other, more experienced colleagues to consider and utilise as well.
