The International Teachers Programme kicks off another iteration of its renowned faculty development programme at London Business School in January.
The ITP programme – delivered by world-class teachers, for teachers – has been leading teaching practice for 50 years. It has developed an approach that enables faculty to transform how they teach.
Key highlights of the programme include:
- Transforming mindsets from teaching to learning
What happens when you think less about your teaching and more about your students’ learning?
- Body, voice and presence
The lecture theatre is your stage. How you act on it can have a huge impact on your students and their learning. This highly interactive session led by actors from London’s West End will teach you how to use your body and voice to maximise your impact.
- Pedagogical choices
You will experience highly interactive case-method teaching, skilled lecturing and a multiplicity of teaching styles that lie in between, all intended to bring relevance and interaction to your students’ learning.
- Technology, teaching and learning
There’s an abundance of new teaching technology. Which should you explore and which should you ignore?
- Culture in the classroom
Your classroom has a culture of its own and it’s your task to shape and develop it. Ignore it at your peril.
- Teaching lab
One of the favourite elements enjoyed by previous ITP attendees. You will teach something to your group and a coach who will provide feedback on what it’s like to be taught by you. Then you will do it again – differently, we expect – in Module 2!
- A teaching experiment
Between Modules 1 and 2, you will be asked to experiment with teaching in a manner that you are not accustomed to.
- Your best self as a teacher
There is an almost infinite array of teaching styles and no single ‘right way’. The key question and a key outcome of the ITP is finding your best self as a teacher.
Who is it for?
- Faculty at any level who care about real excellence in teaching, including junior faculty who have at least two years of teaching experience.
- Faculty at career inflection points, such as having recently won tenure or been promoted, who are now interested in devoting a greater share of their time to further developing their teaching.
- Faculty who have achieved competence in teaching one kind of audience and would like to extend their skills to other audiences.
- Faculty holding institutional responsibilities that include faculty and/or pedagogical development.
- Faculty who would benefit from joining, learning from and contributing to a vibrant global network of such individuals.
