Description

This book is designed to take you step by step through each teaching experience you will face. It includes advice, practical exercises, top tips and words of warning on:




- seminar presentations to your peers


- leading undergraduate seminars


- choosing material for teaching


- preparing productive teaching aids


- giving lectures


- dynamic learning environments


- handling assessment


- success as a guest speaker


- mentoring


This is a practical 'how-to' guide which is supported throughout by accessible explorations of how teaching can support your research. Written by lecturers who have taught for many years, the 'voice of experience' sections will support and encourage you in your move towards becoming a successful and confident educator.



The Success in Research series, from Cindy Becker and Pam Denicolo, provides short, authoritative and accessible guides on key areas of professional and research development.



Avoiding jargon and cutting to the chase of what you really need to know, these practical and supportive books cover a range of areas from presenting research to achieving impact, and from publishing journal articles to developing proposals. They are essential reading for any student or researcher interested in developing their skills and broadening their professional and methodological knowledge in an academic context.
