First Aid in Teaching, 6 September 2019

Everything you always wanted to know about teaching (but were afraid to ask)

Presenting Josephine Hoegaerts, Riikka Tuori and Antti Korpisaari

Do your students look at you in horror and despair when you want to discuss an article they just read? Do you feel making them talk about their reading is like pulling teeth? 

Don’t fret! 

HEL’s Culture Club is here to help … or at least to provide a space for commiseration and discussion.

In this first instalment of ‘First Aid in Teaching’ , we invite everybody to participate in a conversation about a very common challenge in (seminar) teaching: how to support students in the difficult task of reading and discussing a scholarly article. If you are an experienced teacher, please come and share your experiences and best practices, if you are starting to teach, come to gain inspiration and take courage, and if you were recently a student yourself, please come and tell us about your perspective!

After the seminar, we warmly invite you to join us at the Thirsty Scholar for a ‘back to school’ party .

(MA and PhD students are encouraged to attend and share their experiences!)

PS: we’re hoping to make ‘First Aid in Teaching’ a regular feature of the HEL’s Culture Club series. If you have ideas for more teaching-related discussions, let us know!
