About this workshop

Are you new to teaching or looking to enhance and refresh how you teach? If so, Foundations of University Teaching is for you!

This 1.5 day workshop is comprised of two modules - Understanding Learning and Designing for Learning, and a Micro-teaching session. These modules are designed to support you in becoming an intentional, effective leader of student learning.

In the FUT modules we explore:

DAY 1

Understanding Learning

  • The basic mechanism of learning
  • How to apply knowledge of these mechanisms to our teaching

DAY 1

Designing for Learning

  • How to design a learning and teaching session that is aligned to course learning outcomes, and incorporates active learning

DAY 2

Micro-teaching

You will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge from the two modules explored on Day 1, in a micro-teaching session on Day 2 of the workshops.

Focusing on practical knowledge to help you settle into your teaching role, this workshop is also the starting point in the Teaching for Learning (TFL) Program. The TFL Program is accredited by Advance HEA in the UK, with successful completion of the full program leading to HEA Associate Fellow (AFHEA) - a globally recognised award. Attendance on both days is important if you are intending to seek Associate Fellowship.
