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.

In addition to our regular calendar of synchronous events, we also run courses and events on:

Assessment enhancement

Developing higher education identities 

Improving accessibility in the classroom

Communication and presentation skills 

Teaching contested topics

Atlas asynchronous courses

The current schedule for 2022/23 is below. As more events are confirmed, they will be added to the schedule; so watch this space.
