Networking Session - What's your top tip for teaching?

Led by Dr Simon Usherwood (University of Surrey)

There is no one best way to do learning and teaching: instead, there are  nearly as many ways of tackling it as there are practitioners. In this welcome and getting-to-know-you session we're going to share our ideas with each other.


How to turn your teaching methods and/or discipline-specific work into peer-reviewed pedagogical and/or wider HE research

Dr Karen Heard-Laureote (University of Portsmouth) and Dr Christopher Huggins (Keele University)

Ever thought of publishing your teaching practice but don't know where to start? Ever considered whether your discipline-specific research could be translated into wider HE research? If so, come and join us for this interactive session where we will share ideas and tips on maximising your research outputs and overcoming barriers to publishing our pedagogic practice.


Teaching the EU in Challenging Times

Chair: Dr Heidi Maurer (Maastricht University)

The EU is both a fast-moving and an increasingly contentious subject to study and to teach. From populism and Brexit to illiberal democracy and the democratic deficit, we find issues that are in constant flux and which raise sensitive questions for everyone in the classroom. In this closing session of the workshop, we will consider the implications this has for us as educators and academics.

Following the Teaching Workshop the UACES AGM will take place between 17:00 and 18:00. All UACES members are welcome to attend.
