Introduction to HE Teaching at Bristol

January 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - January 14, 2022 @ 11:00 am

This online course has been designed for those new to teaching/and or supporting learning including:

  • Teaching support roles – for example demonstrators, graduate teachers and associate teachers
  • Research staff (pathway 2) with some teaching responsibilities
  • Teaching staff (pathway 1 or 3) new to teaching at Bristol waiting to join the PGCAP or the CREATE HEA Fellowship Scheme

All research staff and PGRs who teach are required to engage in appropriate training to support them in their teaching: this training course fills this requirement and replaces the Starting to Teach programme.

Course aims 

This short online course is scheduled across 3 days for 90 minutes per day. The aim of the course is to provide you with the skills and knowledge to plan learning and teaching for flexible and blended delivery.

In the course you will: 

  • Explore current thinking about engaging and interactive learning
  • Examine principles of inclusive teaching
  • Engage with good practice in marking and giving feedback
  • Experience how different technologies can support different types of learning and teaching
  • Apply principles of good practice to your teaching and your context

This course draws from these events but has new and specifically designed material suitable as an introduction to teaching.  You don’t need to attend Introduction to HE Teaching at Bristol if you have already attended a BILT course over the last year, but you are welcome to attend if you wish to refresh your skills and would benefit from further input.
