Effective Undergraduate Supervision (Life Sciences) Fri 7 Jun 2019   10:00 [Places]

Looking back at your experience of education you can probably remember those teachers and lecturers who were excellent. We remember the ones who were good because they have left a lasting impact on us; shaping both our learning in the past and our approach as teachers. Supervising undergraduate students at Cambridge can be one of the most rewarding activities for PhDs and Postdocs and this course is designed to make sure that you can offer your best and hopefully be one of those memorable teachers for someone else.

This blended workshop incorporates personal reflection on teaching practice, discussion of real teaching scenarios, a chance to ask questions of an experienced supervisor and access to practical information about organising and carrying out your supervisions.

This training is required by many colleges before you can carry out supervisions and is always a popular course.

Lecturing Performance Wed 5 Jun 2019   09:00 [Places]

Disabled people face a range of barriers to their effective use of libraries, yet they are an important resource in enabling students to participate in study. This course will explore ways of accommodating disabled library users and help you to develop a plan for enhancing the service you offer. Libraries too have responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 and this course will help you to achieve this.

This individually-focused and completely confidential one-to-one coaching session will help you in identifying how to utilise your voice more effectively and will address practical points about elocution that will reduce vocal strain, improve vocal range, variety, clarity and pronunciation, as well as help you develop new approaches to your communication in a wide range of professional situations.

This participative, discussion based workshop will provide an opportunity to reflect on how students with mental health difficulties can be supported in postgraduate study. It will cover best practice in supporting students and update on services available to all involved.


This course will consider the academic barriers experienced by students with Specific Learning Difficulties. It will cover a range of teaching environments and increase your awareness of best practice in implementing support. Most importantly it will give practical advice about best practice to ensure an effective learning environment for all involved. The course will focus on dyslexia, dyspraxia and dysgraphia.

Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties: Identification and Diagnosis (Briefing) is a useful precursor to this workshop, as it will not cover diagnosis or identification of specific learning difficulties.
