BAMS Postgraduate Training Day: Pedagogy (9 April 2021)

We’ve already circulated a save the date for this, but here are further details of this year’s BAMS Postgraduate Training Day, which will run online (via Zoom) on Friday 9 April 2021.

This year’s topic is pedagogy. In addition to the kinds of questions that we all have when we come to teach for the first time, this year we’ve been having to think again about our practices in delivering material online.

The outline for the day is:

11-12.30: Modernism and Teaching Difficulty (Dr Barbara Cooke)
12.30-1.30 Lunch
1.30-2.45 Modernism and Teaching in Different Places (Dr Sophie Baldock and Dr Andrew Frayn)
2.45-3.00 Coffee Break
3.00-3.45 Roundtable on Modernism and Postgraduate Pedagogy (BAMS executive committee members)
3.45 End

Those times will include space for Q&A, and discussion in breakout rooms which will be hosted by our PGR reps. We’re working on the best way to organise this, and in registering we’re asking for research keywords to try to facilitate this.

As we’ll be doing the event online this year, it’s free and open to all.
Please register at the form here: https://forms.gle/2wrMr3m3q4YXMxrn7
You will need to register by 4pm (UK time) on Thursday 8 April 2021. The event link will be sent via email.

We’re looking forward to talking about teaching with you next month!
