The Teaching Interest Group and Education Research (TIGER) is a group and discussion forum for anyone actively involved in teaching, curriculum or education development within the School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences. The main focus of TIGER is to support and share good teaching practice.
Enhancing the student learning experience is central to the School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences and TIGER provides a platform for academic staff to discuss the latest thinking in education, share best practice or simply listen to expert speakers. TIGER encourages engagement with online learning tools, such as our internal online learning environment QMplus, and using new teaching technologies and practices, recognising the importance of supporting different learning needs. The TIGER committee meets once a term to discuss ongoing initiatives.
TIGER activities include a lunchtime seminar series and the development of an internal teaching support network where staff can share experiences and offer support and advice for educational projects. Our seminar series includes external speakers and workshops that focus on academic teaching needs. These workshops also contribute to the Academic Development, Education and the Promotion of Teaching programme.
