The programmes are run primarily in Michaelmas Term each year, but are repeated in intensive format in Lent Term for those teaching only that term. In all cases, participants will be notified of programme dates and other details via their home departments. Any inquiries should be addressed to LSE's Teaching and Learning Centre at|
