The University values the efforts of its wide and active community of postgraduate tutors. It also considers teaching as a core skill needed for postgraduates to develop into well rounded members of the academic community.
Therefore, Warwick requires that all PhD students complete a teaching skills development course by the end of their first year of registration.
Preparing to Teach in Higher Education has been created by the Academic Development Centre to provide an introduction to the core skills and techniques that promote active, student-centred learning in the higher education environment. Delivered in conjunction with departments and research centres from across the University, Preparing to Teach in Higher Education balances fundamental aspects of good teaching practice with discipline-specific perspectives.
For the 2021/22 academic year Preparing to Teach in Higher Education will continue as an online module. However, there will be an opportunity to participate in a workshop, exploring some of the programme's key themes.
How to enrol
To participate in Preparing to Teach in Higher Education you first need to speak with the person in your department or centre who is responsible for either postgraduates who teach or skills development. They will be able to provide you with details on when your department will be offering access to this course and how to enrol.
