Small group teaching: a toolkit for learning

This resource offers a thought-provoking and lighthearted look at the rewards and challenges of small-group teaching. From anthropology to zoology first-year undergraduates to research postgraduates small group teaching is ubiquitous in higher education. At its best it is hugely rewarding for both teacher and taught.

Many take this skill for granted and those new to teaching tend not to get the support they need. This is a pity for it is an eminently transferable academic skill. If you can teach small groups effectively you can liven up your lectures and seminars too.

This resource is for those new (and not so new) to teaching in higher education. In it has been distilled an extensive set of educational literatures and resources into a teacher-friendly resource pack.
