WPTC is the outcome of the WIHEA-funded ‘Postgraduate Digital Teacher Hub’ project, launched by Sara Hattersley in spring 2021.
The intention of the Postgraduate Digital Teacher Hub project was not to produce a finished article. Instead, the aim was to lay down a framework for building a greater sense of community amongst the hundreds of postgraduate students who teach at Warwick, whatever their department or faculty and whatever their precise teaching role.
We have set the ball rolling in terms of sharing teaching experiences and practices, investigating the needs and requirements of postgraduate tutors, encouraging engagement with continuous professional development, and creating cross-department and cross-faculty links for providing support/informal socialising opportunities.
We hope that, moving forwards, postgraduate tutors and the university more widely will take this framework, engage with it, flesh it out, and take it in new directions. We want as many postgraduate tutors as possible actively engaged with WPTC to create a sense of community amongst us and improve the experiences and quality of teaching for all.
This hub gives an overview of WPTC’s different activities and the many opportunities for you to get involved. You’ll find links to our Moodle platform and social media, as well as background information about the project and the people behind it.If you have any suggestions for content or ideas for activities that WarwickPTC could run, or if you have any questions or queries, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
