The LDC Development Team offer a series of workshops to help you develop skills in facilitation. Facilitation skills can help you manage meetings and work with others, particularly if you work in teams, work with people as part of your research or have take part in public engagement. Such skills are also extremely useful for your future career.
These workshops also form part of our Development Tutor Scheme, which is open to all postgraduate researchers at Liverpool in the second year onwards of their degree. The scheme provides both training and practise in experiential teaching, and includes paid teaching opportunities within the LDC Programme and the support to help you develop your own workshops or webinars.
