The premise of the activities in this resource (appropriate for an individual or a group) is that the time that students spend between lectures, seminars and workshops is as important as the time they spend in class sessions because this is how and where students develop the critical ability to work independently. However, students, especially first-years, need to be taught these skills and these activities provide guidance on how you might go about that work with methods that that push beyond the well-worn phrase, ‘read the book and think about it.’
Two exercises on inclusive seminar design, for use by English lecturers seeking to develop their skills. One activity is for use by an individual lecturer working alone; the other is for use in a group setting. Both activities involve the viewing of video examples of English Literature seminar leaders in action. There is also an overview of the activities.
