Designing an English degree programme
There are three types of activities, appropriate for English lecturers working in groups or as individuals, in this resource. Their topics are employability, transition from A level, and getting the ‘delicate balance’ right between literature, language and Creative Writing when designing an English programme for today’s students. These activities rely in part on an interview with Professor Marion Wynne-Davies (University of Surrey). As Head of Department, Wynne-Davies shares the ideas and strategies she followed to launch the Surrey English degree programme in 2008.

Transformative writing
Two exercises on the use of creative writing in English Literature seminars. The exercises have been designed for use by English lecturers seeking to develop their skills. One activity is for use by an individual lecturer working alone; the other is for use in a group setting. Both activities suggest ways of turning to pedagogic use an activity which students of the English subjects are expected to be able to perform, but which teachers all too often simply see as a medium of assessment. They propose and exemplify writing as a pedagogic tool. There is also an overview of the activities.

Writing & the teacher
This resource contains a set of activities that use 'Imaginative writing' in various ways as a tool for thinking and learning. Like many of the resources in The Pool, it aims to breach the barriers between subject thinking and educational thinking. The resource is made up of an introduction and two different activities: Activity 1: helps teachers and supporters of learning to explore the way in which their values and experience inform their minute-to-minute pedagogic decisions. Activity 2: involves identifying metaphors for teaching and then exploring them in practical ways.
