Resource Folder for New Lecturers
Updated for 2011/2012
The UK Centre for Bioscience Resource Folder for Academic Staff is designed for staff new to teaching (experienced lecturers may find it useful too) and is intended to complement the largely-generic information delivered in staff development courses. It is produced as a folder so you can supplement the information with documents you find useful, so with time you will have a personalised resource of information.
Resources and information in the folder is divided into several sections within the folder, each section is available to download as a pdf. You can also download the folder in full.
Each section contains tips and other things to consider followed by a list of relevant resources. The information and resources are directed at bioscientists although the folder does include some generic teaching information.
We are happy to supply you with single or multiple copies, free of charge. Please contact the Centre on firstname.lastname@example.org to request copies.
We have a limited number of copies to distribute free of charge on a first come, first served basis. In order that we can keep producing the folders, and distributing them free of charge or at limited cost, we need to be able demonstrate they are being used and that this is impacting positively on teaching and learning. To help us achieve this, our preference is to send the folders to named individuals. This will enable us to contact recipients for feedback on the folders, and also to send them updates for the folders (for example new ‘Short Guides’).
The folder contains lists of resources which we consider to be the most useful under in each section and a list of additional resources relevant to bioscience teaching in general. However, there are many more resources and publications available and if a section particularly interests you, you may wish to look at the following bibliographies.
We also produce resource lists to distribute at some of our events, which you may find useful, including: Assessment for Learning; Work Placements; e-Learning; and Pedagogic Research, all these and more are available to download from the resource lists page.
