Atlas

Developing teaching, supporting learning

 

 

  

a unique place to exchange ideas and share experience with other scholars...
this forum fills that gap by allowing for open, sincere discussions about our teaching and how to make it better.

 

Atlas is a programme of events focused on developing teaching and supporting learning for academics and staff at the LSE.

Our 2023/24 programme of events falls under three broad categories:

  • Teaching and assessment including sessions on classroom dynamics and approaches, assessment enhancement, academic integrity and approaches to the issues raised by generative AI tools.
  • Learning communities including academic mentoring, fostering belonging, supervising students and supporting students through coaching approaches.
  • Communication and presentation skills including both one-to-one and group workshops on engaging students and developing your identity in the classroom.

The Eden Centre also hosts a series of events on Inclusive Education and Digital Futures.
