LBS to host International Teachers Programme: call for global delegates
The International Teachers Programme will be hosted at London Business School for the first time in more than 20 years – and returns in January 2019! We want to make this programme the biggest and best ever, and need your help…
What is the International Teachers Programme?
The International Teachers programme (ITP) is a global faculty development programme run by a consortium of 11 top business schools. Consortium members take turns to host the programme in two-year cycles. As a member, LBS will organise and host the programme for 2019 and 2020.
ITP runs across two residential modules, each lasting for four and a half days. The first module takes place between 6-11 January 2019, with the second between 24-28 June – an experiment will be carried out by participants in between. Programme directors for the LBS edition are our very own John Mullins and Chris Higson.
The premise of the programme is for business and management school faculty members to develop their best selves as teachers. The programme involves some of our renowned LBS faculty such as Dan Cable and Aneeta Rattan – as well as award winning faculty from top business schools such as CEIBS, and NYU stern.
The faculty members will receive coaching and practise their teaching skills in teaching labs as well as improve their body, voice and presence in the lecture theatre with actors from London’s West End.
We think the programme will hugely benefit both junior faculty and those who have just changed field with teaching now more of a focus.
