About the workshop

This one-day training is for doctoral students who will be either lecturing, leading seminars and tutorials by themselves, presenting information in a formal way or taking responsibility to ensure undergraduate learning outcomes are met.

It is primarily aimed at those teaching in the faculty of Health and Social Sciences (HSS) or the School of Management.

The training is a general introduction to teaching and supporting learning and will cover:

  • what makes a good teacher?
  • how your role fits into the undergraduate learning experience
  • consideration of the undergraduate learning journey
  • micro-teaching practice
  • considerations for running seminars
  • considerations for marking and giving feedback
  • how do you know if undergraduates are learning?
  • 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.
