Preparation

For the first session it would be useful to reflect on your experience of teaching seminars. As regards curriculum development you could think about your experiences as undergraduates and taught postgraduates and how the learning experience could have been improved. For the final session you could design a module in an area of interest. If you would like to share this design with the other participants and have it discussed please email a copy to Mark Addis (mark.addis@bcu.ac.uk) BY 30 NOVEMBER so it can be copied.

Travel expenses

We have a limited budget to reimburse your travel expenses if you are not at Birmingham or BCU. Please keep all receipts; we will give you a claim form on the day. Please note we can ONLY pay for public transport (no taxis) or private car, up to a maximum of £10 per person (so if you want to drive, give some other people a lift and you can claim more).

Getting to the University

The easiest way is by bus. From Carrs Lane (which is near Birmingham Moor Street and Birmingham New Street stations) take the limited stop 934, 993 or 997 buses to the University. The service is frequent and takes 10 minutes. Attwood building is a few minutes walk from the bus stop. See the campus map; Attwood Building is A.
