Take your lecturer for a coffee – developing conversations

Following the Educating Huddersfield event organised by the University of Huddersfield Students’ Union (SU), the Teaching and Learning Institute (TALI) in collaboration with the SU is offering students a voucher to ‘take a lecturer for a coffee’. The aim is to promote student and staff conversations about teaching and learning and is part of developing a partnership approach to the educational experience at Huddersfield.

The Teaching and Learning Institute has already contacted all students who attended the event to offer them an opportunity to explore in an informal way some aspects of teaching and learning. The vouchers are for £10 and can be used in most of the catering outlets on campus.

If you are a University of Huddersfield student and you are interested in this scheme, you can collect a voucher from Natalia Rosca or Karolis Pantelejevas (TALI Project Assistants) in the Central Service Building, level 10, room 06.

Please email them to set up a date/time to collect: Natalia Rosca and Karolis Pantelevejas 

Update 24 March 2015: As a result of the scheme there has already been some positive and productive conversations about improving class participation, teaching methods and more. We hope you will take part in the conversation.

One Response to Take your lecturer for a coffee – developing conversations

    I love this initiative! Assuming that lecturers aren’t already maxed out busy I like it because those informal conversations really offer unguided opportunities to explore topics and ideas away from the formal curriculum. Also, the lecturer can learn just as much from and about students as the students do about their topic. I’m not fishing for coffee here but take advantage of the scheme and see which of the staff feel like taking their coffee break with you!
