Career development: external events
Information about teaching-related events and training, and calls for papers and presentations, will be posted here regularly. For information about funding for participation in external opportunities, see our Funding for teaching and learning development pages.
There are two major teaching induction programmes at LSE:
Being a GTA at LSE, for all new graduate teaching assistants and any guest and emeritus teachers who wish to attend;
New Academic Induction Programme, for all those new to teaching and/or to LSE.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
