The Postgraduate Research Student (PGR) Offer notes that we will provide opportunities, where available, for teaching and demonstrating work across the academic year. The Doctoral College invites expressions of interest in this twice a year, via the weekly Doctoral College newsletter. Such opportunities can be developmental, enhance your CV, build your confidence, and will support researchers interested in pursuing an academic career.
For further information, please see PGR Training and Teaching Position (Word doc 24k)
Training to Teach
Where the PGR student does not hold a teaching qualification, they will be required to complete at least one of the learning and teaching workshops within the Research Student Development Programme during their first year of teaching/demonstrating at the University. This "Essentials of the Classroom" course can be booked via CANVAS, and you'll find information regarding upcoming sessions in the weekly Doctoral College newsletter, and in our Almanac of training events for each semester.
For those students wishing to undertake additional, optional training and development, the Institute of Education will offer a formal module of training (for which the student will need to pay). PGR students will be able to register for the Advance HE accredited module 7ED048 Contemporary Learning, Teaching and Assessment in Higher Education, provided that they teach or demonstrate for more than 10 hours during the delivery of the module, their Director of Studies supports the student undertaking this module, and there is capacity on the module. This module does not guarantee that PGR students will obtain further teaching opportunities within the University.
