The UK Centre for Materials Education (UKCME) is once again organising a 2-day workshop for newly / recently appointed lecturers (ie academic staff who have commenced within the past 3 years) who teach aspects of Materials, either in courses or modules.
This UKCME workshop is focused fully on subject-specific approaches to teaching. It will be delivered by experienced Materials practitioners, with additional contributions from a number of academics teaching Materials who have successfully completed their probationary period.
All costs of the workshop will be met by UKCME, inclusive of accommodation and meals. Participants need only meet their travel costs to Liverpool.
Participating new lecturers from the workshop in September 2009 commented:
This workshop has been designed by UKCME to supplement accredited generic-based courses that all new academic staff from across an institution are normally required to undertake in their early years (for example, a certificate of academic practice, or a certificate of teaching in higher education). As an incentive, participation in the UKCME workshop may be used by delegates to gain credit towards certain elements of such generic-based courses when they return to their institutions.
