I thought to post a quick note here about the forthcoming live chat on “How to be a good lecturer” . The chat officially starts tomorrow Friday 18th of May at 12 BST in the format of posting comments at the end of the page and of posting tweets with the hashtag #goodlecturer.
The chat is organised by the Guardian’s Higher Education Network and facilitated by a 6-member panel consisting of lecturers.
“Its aim is to bring together the latest insight, comment, advice and best practice for professionals working in and with higher education.”
Although the chat is practically starting tomorrow, the discussions have already taken off on both the Guardian website and Twitter.
Interestingly, one of the early comments touched upon the field of the teacher’s identity which I am very much interested in and it has come up in all the texts on reflection I’ve been reading the last 2 weeks.
I will be following the Guardian comments and the tweets with great interest. I do acknowledge that the online sample of views may lead to over-generalisations, nevertheless the diverse characher of the commentators along with the pluralism of these discussions will give a good picture of the present culture of HE lecturers.
