Teaching Development

tdp

Welcome to Teaching Development in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Teaching development is an important part of your career in higher education. New and innovative practices for the enhancement of teaching and learning in higher education are continually being developed. The Faculty's Teaching and Learning portfolio is dedicated to helping you keep abreast of the latest developments, and to making them accessible to you. From here you can link to any of the several orientations, programs, workshops and seminars that the Faculty offers for teaching development.

Sessional Teacher Orientation

Basic, initial information for the starting tutor and masters seminar teacher.

Teaching Development Program

An articulated development program that couples with Sessional Teacher Orientation and Educational Innovation's Principles and Practices Program (or the Graduate Certificate in Higher Education). This program develops techniques for face to face teaching, lesson planning, assessment and marking, and review of teaching practices. TDP includes conventional and blended learning sessions.

Workshops and Seminars

If you have any questions about these or other academic support and development events being staged by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, please contact in the Teaching and Learning portfolio.

Peer Observation of Teaching (POT) Program: Semester 2, 2016


Do you want the see how award-winning lecturers and tutors deliver their classes? Would you like to get some peer feedback on how you teach? The FASS Peer Observation of Teaching (POT) Program offers just such opportunities, and the semester 2 program is now open for registration.

The program gives you several options for reviewing and revitalizing your teaching practice. You will need to observe another staff member and be observed, but you can choose a combination of:

1. Peer Observation– you and a colleague can choose to cooperate to observe and providing feedback on each other’s teaching.
2. Observation of award-winners – you can also choose to observe past Teaching Award winners in action.
3. Observation by a mentor – if you prefer a neutral party, you can team up with a past award winner to observe your teaching.

The POT Module is recognized by FASS as training in Teaching and Learning and can be used for your AP&D, promotions applications, and in applications for Teaching Awards. It is also an approved activity to complete the Education Innovation Principles and Practices program.

The program dates are: Friday, 12 August - 10:00 - 11:00 am and
Thursday, 27 October - 2:00 - 3:00 pm.

Register for the full POT program via this ENROL link. To enrol you will need to enter your unikey details. If you have any questions please email .

A full range of support materials will be made available to participants online.
