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!

BAMS PGR Training Day: Teaching & Pedagogy, Edinburgh, 3 Apr 2020

CANCELLED

Edinburgh Napier University, Merchiston Campus

Friday 3 April 2020

Register here

BAMS runs a rotating three-year series of postgraduate training days which focus on the three key parts of most salaried academic contracts: research, teaching and administration.

This year the training day focuses on teaching and pedagogy.  The focus will be on discursive sessions through which attendees can develop their own practice.

We’re delighted that Sarah Bernstein and Patricia Malone, Early Career Fellows at the University of Edinburgh, will join us to lead a session on teaching difficulty.  The sessions will focus on:

  • Teaching difficulty / modernism in the classroom (Sarah Bernstein and Patricia Malone, University of Edinburgh)
  • Teaching at / to different levels and in different settings (Andrew Frayn, Edinburgh Napier University, and Claire Warden, Loughborough University)
  • Pedagogical techniques, methods and approaches (TBA)

The day will run from 11am-5.30pm.  Lunch is not provided, but there will be a generous lunch break, information on local places to eat, and a breakout room if you prefer to bring your own food.

Thanks to the Centre for Literature and Writing at Edinburgh Napier University for supporting the event.

We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh!

Registration open for PG and ECR training day

Registration is now open for the BAMS Postgraduate and Early Career Researcher Training Day: Career/Administration. Reserve your place at the RHUL online shop:
(£5 for BAMS members and £10 for non-members).

Wed. 28 March 2018, 10.00am (first session at 10.30am) – 5.10pm.
Location:  Room 104, Senate House, London WC1 7HU (central London)

The ninth annual BAMS training day this year will focus on career administration and university administration in the early career (especially as it impacts on the expectations of job applicants and ECRs). The focus will be on practical advice, but the day will also allow candidates to focus on the profession as it is currently developing, and to reflect on their own skills, and indeed on how they might be put to use outside academia. While the day is organized by BAMS, its general focus means that students working in other areas should find it equally valuable, students in the TECHNE consortium are especially encouraged to attend. You can find the full programme here.

The training day is hosted by the Department of English at Royal Holloway and the TECHNE consortium and will be led by members of the BAMS executive as well as TECHNE staff.
