Introduction to Teaching Workshops
SDDU runs workshops on aspects of teaching and student learning for postgraduate research students, research staff and other part time teachers who have teaching responsibilities at the University of Leeds. These workshops are aligned to the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning in higher education 2011 and aim to prepare participants for their teaching role. They focus on development of the essential skills required for demonstrating, small group teaching, lecturing, and assessing student work.
There are two series of workshops each academic year: a faculty series and a central series.
The faculty series provides an introduction to teaching for postgraduate research students at a faculty or school level. Booking is through the faculty or school contact person indicated. If you are a postgraduate research student please ensure there is not a faculty workshop appropriate for you before booking onto the central series.
Further Development Workshops
For those interested in developing their teaching further there are additional workshops on the central series on student learning, student diversity and engagement, and evaluating teaching practice.
