Technical staff are increasingly taking on teaching and demonstrating roles.

The course is recommended for technical staff with a role in training or teaching undergraduates, postgraduates, postdocs, new colleagues and apprentices. It is relevant to all academic disciplines and will promote personal and professional development, which is valuable to both you and your employer.
Delivery will be by informal active learning sessions (group activities, discussion), discovery learning and reflection on current practice. Discovery learning forms a large part of the programme and as such collaboration amongst participants to discuss core concepts and reflect on current practice is actively encouraged, to create a more tailored learning experience.
