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.
Participating new lecturers from the workshop in September 2010 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.
Expression of Interest:
