The LTHE course is designed for postgraduates who are teaching in an HE environment.

Completion of this course is a mandatory requirement for all postgraduates who teach (PGWT) at the University of Dundee.

The course articulates with the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice in Higher Education [PGCAPHE), a continuing professional development (CPD) course in academic practice.

Who can participate?

This short course is aimed at postgraduate students who teach, but is also open to all part-time tutors who teach.

Course outcomes

We will issue a certificate of attendance upon attendance of all five workshops. The course is supported by online materials from the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice in Higher Education (PGCAPHE) programme. It can provide a starting point for PGWT who are considering engaging with the Associate Module of the PGCAPHE. Completion of this can lead on to gaining Associate Fellow status with the Advance HE

Peer observation of teaching has just been introduced to the course. Participants will undergo a teaching observation by a member of the ASC team or an ASC associate to provide valuable feedback on their teaching.

  • Comply with mandatory element for PGWT
  • Develop personal learning and teaching skills

Attendee quotes

Our facilitator created an inclusive and friendly atmosphere in which to share feedback about recent teaching experiences. This exchange was very productive.
I got valuable information on some of the factors to consider when assessing students. In addition I also got the information that it is linked to the associate fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, which [I’m] interested in.
