Can you briefly outline your teaching experience?



Please choose the cohort you would like to join from the list below: we will try to accomodate every request, but in case of over-subscription, we will allocate the spaces to staff whose end of probation is imminent.

The course is made of 8 classes, and we'd expect you to attend at least 5 of them.

Term 1 will be run via Blackboard Collaborate.


Spring Term Group C: Wednesdays from 14.00 to 16.00: January 13-20-27; February 3-10-24; March 3-10. (waiting list only)  
Spring Term Group D: Mondays from 10.00 to 12:00: January 11-18-25; February 1-8-22; March 1-8.  
Summer Term Sprint: Every Tuesday and Thursday in May, from 10.00 to 12.00: May 4-6-11-13-18-20-25-27  

Is there anything we can do to assist you (relating e.g. to room layout, wheelchair access, format of slides and handouts or seating arrangements)?


***Once we are back to face-to-face teaching, the Arena Two sessions will be held on the 10th floor, 1-19 Torrington Place. (From term 2 onwards)***

We employ Evac+Chairs in an emergency to evacuate visitors unable to walk down 10 flights of stairs. Please inform before attending a session if you think you might need assistance when evacuating the building, or if you have spinal injuries that would prohibit this method of evacuation.
