GeogEd/RGS Teaching and Scholarship (TeaS) Meets

A place for meeting, sharing, collating, and supporting teaching and scholarship in HE

The idea behind GeogEd TeaS is to provide an informal but regular meeting place for anyone at any stage of their career. Primarily focused on teaching and scholarship within the geography and related disciplines, this community group aims to provide support, advice, encouragement, and resources for educationalists within higher ed.

With more institutions focusing on teaching and scholarship (or teaching and education) career pathways, we hope to create an inclusive and supportive network of colleagues that speaks to the challenges and opportunities such a career path provides. Over the coming academic year, we invite you to join us in this forum for discussion and TeaS advocacy.

The structure will be monthly, online meetings held on the third Wednesday of each month, between 2 and 3pm, starting in October and running until May each year. We plan meet ups around community needs, as well as hosting guest contributors to discuss or advise upon key aspects of TeaS such as, promotion, building a national profile, pedagogic research, etc.
