Call for bids

The Subject Centre is inviting bids from colleagues in UK Higher Education to develop and run workshops for teaching and support staff in Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies. The successful applicant(s) will be required to plan, run and report on two regional workshops for HE staff. Any resources produced for the training events will be made available to staff in other institutions via the Subject Centre website. Workshops can cover any area relevant to the teaching of LLAS disciplines, but this year we will particularly welcome workshops relating to our three key themes:

  • Assessment
  • Engaging with employers
  • Supporting new staff and professional development

Please note that additional topics to those listed above are welcome.
