Course content

This year-long series of workshops and events is designed for staff engaged in student-facing education activities who are keen to pursue professional development and enhance the impact of their teaching and the student experience. Most sessions are applicable to the range of issues encountered in a social sciences education context, with a few sessions that are discipline-specific. The sessions are clustered around themes that include:

  • Assessment diversification and feedback
  • Inclusive education
  • Learning engagement and learning communities - online and offline
  • Online learning environments
  • Critical thinking and critical education
  • Voice coaching to develop teaching and communication skills


The sessions are offered in a range of modes - on campus, online synchronous, online asynchronous, and blended (online and on-campus, sync and async). They are designed to be stand-alone, so staff can dip in and dip out depending on their schedule and needs. All events follow the dates of the LSE teaching year. Further details, and links to booking pages, can be found on the Atlas page.


There is no formal assessment for this course.
