Lunch-N-Learn Events

LNLs are informal lunches designed to enable sharing of effective teaching strategies as well as strategies for handling challenges in teaching. They are designed as another way for our tutors and teaching staff to meet to discuss teaching in a supportive environment.

Who can attend?

We warmly welcome all Business School staff with teaching responsibilities including full time staff, tutors, and any casual teaching staff. We cap the number attending to enhance the small-group atmosphere.

Why people like going

Participants say that they learn valuable tips to help make teaching easier and better; they value the chance to meet with other teachers/tutors to talk about what is working well; they like discussing the challenges of teaching in a supportive environment; they also value learning from each other across a variety Disciplines and teaching contexts. Most of all, they enjoy and appreciate the sense of community and support fostered in the luncheons.

What happens

The focus of the discussion changes at each luncheon, driven by participants' interests and any challenges they might be facing in their teaching. The discussion is generally free-flowing, led by tutors themselves. We discuss ideas and our experiences teaching in various discipline contexts to identify a range of responses to challenges, and also to share the strategies that are working well for us in our teaching.
