TaLIC contributes to and runs a number of different conferences, discussion groups and workshops exploring various aspect of Higher Education teaching.
Annual John Beacham Teaching Conference
Mary Claire Halvorson of TaLIC and Prof Tim Crook of Media Communications and Cultural Studies jointly run the Annual John Beacham Teaching Conference.
The conference recognises the former Head of Media and Communications, Prof John Beacham’s influence, mentoring, standard setting and development of teaching quality at Goldsmiths.
It features a series of invited speakers from Goldsmiths and beyond. It takes place in mid September and is open to all Goldsmiths staff and students.
TaLIC Lunchtime Conversations
TaLIC’s Lunchtime Conversations are a series of small-group discussions organised and hosted by TaLIC.
They are held weekly during term time in the TaLIC Lounge
They focus on all different aspects of university pedagogy and include such diverse topics as:
- Who am I as a teacher?
- Anxiety - How it impacts on student population and why it seems to be becoming more prevalent
- Inclusive Face to Face Teaching
- TEF: Review of Goldsmiths’ experience so far
- Bridging the Research Teaching Divide
TaLIC are pleased to develop and host workshops on request.
For example, we have provided workshops on ‘An Introduction to Learn.gold’ (Confucius Institute), ‘Assessment and Feedback’ (Politics), and ‘Using WordPress’ (History).
Examples of other possible workshops include:
- Learn.gold assignments with the new Turnitin integration
- TurnItIn - effectively interpreting similarity reports and using GradeMark for feedback
- Learn.gold - beyond the filing cabinet (pages, books, quizzes, the scheduler, databases, forums etc.)
