An interviewer at Oxford University’s faculty of law talks about the pitfalls of the process and how to avoid them

For students invited to attend a law school interview, it can be a daunting prospect. Especially as knowledge of the subject is generally not a requirement for undergraduates. So what should candidates expect? Imogen Goold, admissions coordinator at Oxford University’s faculty of law, has been interviewing students for 12 years.

What kind of students are you looking for?

My university forced me into teaching training. It was all dry 'eduspeak' | Anonymous academic

the guardian - Fri, 12/10/2018 - 09:30

I’d like to be a great lecturer, but I don’t think theory divorced from classroom context will make me one

Soon after I joined a UK-based university as a lecturer, I received an email inviting me to enrol on a year-long course on teaching and learning, which would purportedly enhance my skills as a teacher. I had taught for several years in another country, teaching mostly undergraduate students. I prefer to learn by doing and was happy honing my skills by building practical experience in the classroom. I had never heard any colleague voice the wish for formal teacher training, nor did I think it necessary. It turns out there was a reason for this.

To caveat: I absolutely believe in lifelong learning and professional development, and I’m always keen to be exposed to new ideas. Unfortunately the course that I followed, which is accredited by the Higher Education Academy, failed to deliver this. It wasn’t practical at all, but rather focused on theory and “eduspeak” that had little relevance to my everyday experience in the classroom.

Headteachers forced to do menial tasks at unfilled rural schools

the guardian - Fri, 12/10/2018 - 02:01

Some heads in England say they also do gardening and cleaning in schools to cut costs

More than four in 10 rural schools in England are undersubscribed and therefore facing significant budget shortfalls, forcing headteachers to multitask in a variety of roles cut costs, according to a survey.

Of the 500 headteachers who responded to the survey, 42% said their school’s places had not been filled. This has a direct impact on funding, as each pupil brings additional money to a school.

Two years ago, we were freshers starting our law degrees and had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Here’s everything we learned from our first year.

There is so much reading. It can’t be ignored. It’s important that you dedicate time and effort to your required (and extra) reading so it won’t pile up. Spending roughly 10 hours a week with your head down – at least – will keep your workload manageable.

Ce n’est pas notre statut de femmes que nous voulons voir respecté, mais notre statut de chercheuses, d’intellectuelles, de productrices de savoir.
