Teach at Dundee is our Academic Induction Programme which runs in conjunction with DUSA.
It is open to all staff engaged in teaching who have joined the University within the last year. This year it will not run face-to-face but will be replaced by an online resource plus several short sessions delivered online. Teach at Dundee will be a long, thin induction that will be available to support you throughout the year.
Teach at Dundee online induction guide will answer any questions you have from when the University was established to what the probation process entails to where to get the best cup of coffee on city campus (once open!).
The first online session will run via Blackboard Collaborate on Tuesday 8 September from 10:00-11:30. Dr Lorraine Anderson, Head of the Academic Skills Centre will welcome you and address any immediate questions you have before discussing professional development activities. Professor Blair Grubb, Vice-Principal Education, will join the session to talk to you about learning and teaching at the University, followed by a short Q and A.
Teach at Dundee focusses on teaching in context, introducing you to the vision and culture of the University, as well as the resources and services available to support your teaching.
Engagement with this programme will help you to:
- deepen your understanding of your role as part of the University
- understand the profile of the Dundee student and the role of DUSA
- engage with continuing professional development as a professional university teacher
- provide the best start to your professional career at the University
"The course was extremely useful for stimulating thought on the modern teaching process in general and how that fits into Dundee’s ethos/outlook as well as trends in Higher Education as a whole."
"This 2-day event gave me a deeper understanding of the University, something that's helped underpin my somewhat sporadic understanding so far. Thank you!"
"I made some very good links with other new staff members. It was a lovely experience."
