Session 3 - Friday 6 November
Topic:  Research into Teaching Practice: An Ideas Exchange
Guest Speaker:  Dr Nina Sivertsen, School of Nursing and Midwifery
 
As an academic you may at times feel as if teaching and research are opposing forces.  Promotion processes, as well as your own desire to advance your field, usually require that you devote considerable time to research and publications.  On the other hand, teaching is one of your passions and primary obligations as a scholar.  How can you strike the right balance?
 
This session is meant as an informal space to discuss, encourage and support educators interested in exploring and investigating own teaching practices.  Based in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Nina will share of own experiences as well as facilitate dialogue on:
  • Choosing what to research
  • Writing about learning and teaching
  • Getting published
  • Funding opportunities
