L&T Workshops

The recent Research and Education Showcase demonstrated the Faculty of Arts’ several innovative approaches to learning and teaching. Inspired by this successful event, Arts L&T has put together a series of hands-on practical pedagogical workshops which aim at both early career and established academics who may be interested in embedding some of the ideas presented in their own units or courses.

Currently there are no upcoming Faculty of Arts workshops. Please see Teche Events for other workshops.

Friday 20th August - Team Based Learning 

Team Based Learning (TBL) is a collaborative learning method that centres around the application of knowledge to real-world problems. Through an organised structure that encompasses both individual and group work, it equips the student with the necessary skills to prepare them for their future career.  This workshop will introduce participants to the TBL methodology and showcase its use in ARTS1000 and GEOP3000. Participants will be given a live demonstration of TBL and how it can be incorporated into their tutorials.   

The workshop will be facilitated by Panos Vlachopoulos, Andrew McGregor.
