Report 23: Small Group Teaching in English Literature: A Good Practice Guide

Seminar teaching


This guide aims to give practical help to those new to teaching small groups, and to suggest some fresh ideas for more experienced lecturers. It provides suggestions for activities you might use in seminars, and ideas for relating what happens in a seminar to what happens in the rest of the course. It also includes tips on the detailed running of seminars, such as setting up ‘ground rules’, and on evaluation. The content is illustrated by examples contributed by English lecturers and quotes from students. Whatever your experience and expertise, you will find something useful in this Guide.
