About the workshop

This one-day training workshop is compulsory for postgraduate students who are expected to lead lectures, seminars and tutorials by themselves (presenting information in a formal way or taking responsibility to ensure learning outcomes are met).

This 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 what undergraduates need to know/do
  • your role as a ‘teacher’
  • what makes a good seminar or tutorial
  • micro-teaching practice
  • how do you know if undergraduates are learning
  • developing your teaching practice

You should only book onto this course if you have been offered a teaching position in your department.
