Pre-session preparation: Prepare a short (2 pages) outline of teaching activity you are involved in, including, topic, style of delivery, intended student learning outcomes, and any challenges faced. Don’t feel you have to get this right: the more messy issues, the better. And if you are wondering about something, you can guarantee that others are too – if you mention it, you’ll be saving them the effort!
