Teaching and Learning Essentials

 

Teaching and Learning Essentials (TALE) is the name of a comprehensive workshop programme available to all academic and professional colleagues involved in delivering teaching excellence at MMU.

TALE will be of particular interest to Academics, Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs), Associate Lecturers (ALs) and professional staff involved in supporting student learning as it provides flexible, bite sized opportunities to engage in academic CPD, refresh skills and obtain academic credit and/or professional recognition. Teaching theories that connect to student engagement and learning inform the workshops, but the overall approach is very practical. TALE workshops align to both MMU’s LTA strategy and the UKPSF.
