Expert teachers put their heads together at LSE

Some of the best teachers in higher education have gathered to share their skills and experience.

The annual meeting for National Teaching Fellows is a two-day symposium run by the Higher Education Academy, aimed at promoting teaching excellence and rewarding the best in the business.

The event, hosted by LSE on May 6 and 7, ranges from a discussion of the educational possibilities in the online world of Second Life to a session in which fellows can submit their ideas for future teaching projects to peer review.

The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme has been running since 2000. LSE has two members - Nick Byrne (Director of the Language Centre) and Dr Clare Hemmings (Gender Institute).
