The Divisional Introduction to Learning and Teaching is an interactive and discursive 3-part course in which attendees will explore, with current practitioners, lectures, small groups, tutorials as teaching formats in Oxford, and reflect on preparing to teach in these contexts. You do not need to be teaching in the term you take this course. Participants present for all three sessions will receive an attendance certificate.
Completing an introductory teaching course in Oxford is the minimum requirement for entry onto a graduate teaching register; attendees are advised that departments may require attendance at their own in-house PLTO before allowing entry onto their teaching register; in case of doubt, please check with the relevant department.
You should only sign up if you are able to attend for all 3 sessions.
