Teaching

This page contains information about modules on which I am teaching at Warwick.

2011-12

EN301: Shakespeare and Selected Dramatists

In 2011-12 I am tutoring four seminar groups on this final year undergraduate module in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies.

One class will be taught in traditional seminar format. The other three will be taught in "hybrid" format, an experimental methodology using the principles of Open-Space Learning developed at the CAPITAL Centre and Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning at Warwick.

Authors studied include Shakespeare, Marlowe and Jonson.

I will also be delivering the course lecture on Marlowe's Edward II.

Certificate in Shakespeare: Text and Stage

In 2011-12 I am tutoring and co-directing (with Trudy Hillier) this certificate in the Centre for Lifelong Learning.

This Certificate, roughly equivalent in weighting to a first-year undergraduate module, offers part-time learners an introduction to Shakespeare in performance and on the page. Plays studied include: Twelfth Night, The Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, Titus Andronicus, Richard II and Henry V. Recruitment will shortly be open for the inaugural year of this Certificate.


2009-10

EN121: Medieval to Renaissance English Literature

In 2009-10 I am tutoring two seminar groups on this first year module in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies.

The module is primarily focussed on poetry of the period. Key texts include Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, Spencer's The Faerie Queene and poetry by Wyatt, Sidney, Marlowe, Shakespeare and Donne.

I am keeping a teaching blog for this module. Entries are streamed here.

EN330: Eighteenth Century Literature

In February 2010 I delivered a lecture on Sheridan's The School for Scandal and Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer for this final-year honours module.

IB3810: Critical Issues in Management

As part of a collaboration between Warwick Business School and the CAPITAL Centre, I am assisting on this 3rd year WBS module in 2008-09.

My teaching on this module involves:small group facilitation, the promotion of enactive learning techniques, coaching on presentation and debate skills and exploration of wider ethical and moral issues in law and business contexts.
