About the workshop

This half-day training is provided for students who will be facilitating laboratories/workshops/problem classes and/or contributing to marking for these activities. It is primarily designed for doctoral students in the faculties of Science and Engineering. It may also be relevant for students in Psychology/Economics/Social Sciences/Management who are assisting with labs or stats classes. However, those in these departments who will be leading seminars as well should do the Leading Learning workshop instead.

Chemistry and Maths students should attend their department-based training instead if possible.

The training is a general introduction to teaching and supporting learning and consists of:

  • how your role fits into the undergraduate learning experience
  • considering what undergraduates need to know/do
  • how to respond to questions
  • how to facilitate undergraduates in solving problems
  • considerations in marking and giving feedback
  • developing your teaching practice

Completing this training does not guarantee you employed teaching hours in your department so we recommend taking it only when you have familiarised yourself with the teaching opportunities available.

This training will not cover department-specific administration of teaching or induction into teaching in departments. Departments are expected to offer these in addition to this one-day training as we cannot offer department-specific advice. In addition, this training will not cover project supervision; you should be provided with appropriate support/training by the academic requesting this role.
