A double helping of teaching tips this week from Dr. H – here they are:
If a learner has an unfamiliar ‘non-UK’ name, it is important to pronounce it as well as possible (rather than mess it up, or avoid using it). It is fine to ask for guidance from the student while you learn an unfamiliar name.
When giving feedback, have a checklist of things you will feedback on. (This might be informed by the assessment rubrics.) In this way, you make sure that all students receive parity of feedback on all the important points.
