This series of ‘Conversations’ was inspired by interviews with lecturers from 44 courses in 2007, who discussed their teaching experiences and strategies as part of the CES Analysis Project. These reports are drawn from their stories on changes they had made to their course, motivations for doing so, and ways in which they addressed the GTS items most highly correlated with good teaching.
