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

For teaching support staff: will I get paid? 

All hourly paid staff will get paid to engage with the course. You can claim up to 4.5 hours. Claim alongside your teaching hours; any queries direct to your line manager/MyERP signee.

As this is an online course, we will use Blackboard engagement statistics to verify your engagement.

What if I have already engaged with the University’s Digital Design course or Blended Learning and Teaching course?  

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 are welcome to attend if you wish to refresh your skills and would benefit from further input.
