Many roles in academia require you to teach future researchers. But how important is it to have experience for this? And where should you go to get some?
At the Naturejobs Career Expo in London this September, a panel of four academics got together to discuss their wildly different careers. Jim Usherwood from the Royal Veterinary College only spends his time doing research. Anita Hall from Imperial College London only does teaching. Lorraine Kerr and Louise Horsfall from the University of Edinburgh split their time (with different percentages) between research, teaching, business and management.
In this short film, Hall and Horsfall give some great advice on the importance of teaching experience and where to get some.
