Graduate Teaching Assistants to give keynote at the Association of Law Teachers’ Early Careers Symposium

Leicester Law School

Three of our Graduate Teaching Assistants, Vicki Ball, Arwen Joyce and Charlotte Mills, will deliver the keynote “‘Not a Student, not yet an Academic”: Undergraduate Law Students’ Perceptions of PhD Tutors’ at the Association of Law Teachers Early Careers Symposium on the 10 September 2019 in Leeds. The presentation, based on research which won the Chris Gale Memorial Prize for Best Joint Paper at the ALT annual conference in April 2019, discusses empirical data collected from a student questionnaire and puts forward the techniques and traits needed for effective teaching.

Vicki, Arwen and Charlotte will further develop this research after being awarded funding to conduct focus groups. This data, alongside the data presented in their keynote, will be used to create a Best Practice Teaching Guide for PhD tutors.
