New to university teaching? This professional development program is just for you!

The Beginning to Teach (BTT) program introduces those that are very new to teaching to foundational concepts and practices that are key to getting started with teaching at university. BTT explores perspectives on student learning; how to plan and facilitate a learning activity, and the basics of feedback and assessment. The program also gives participants the opportunity to plan, deliver, and peer-evaluate a short (15 minute) online teaching session on the last day of the program. The next intake will be in July, just prior to the start of Session 2.

Completion of BTT involves attending 2 out of 3 Zoom sessions, which will be held on Wednesday 10-12 on these dates: 30 June, 7 July, and 14 July.
You will also be asked to deliver a short teaching session in the final BTT session (Module 4) on Friday 23 July 10am-1pm.
