  • Introduction to teaching and supporting student learning in HE for Doctoral Students provides initial knowledge and skill development to support HE teaching practice. It is for doctoral students at Brookes who have some, a little or no experience at teaching. The programme comprises a series of synchronous and asynchronous online activities taken throughout the academic year. There are two enrolments per year:

    • November
    • March

    The programme is to support PhD students with teaching responsibilities to gain an initial understanding of their role in supporting learning and good practice in teaching in HE aligned to their context.

    The short programme comprises asynchronous and synchronous tasks that must be completed within the time frame indicated. Total time for the programme is estimated at 5.5 hours and on successful completion, participants will receive:

    • a certificate
    • at least two Inclusive Digital Teacher Moodle badges (from the asynchronous components)
    • feedback on their teaching
    • the opportunity to have networked with PhD students across the institution.

    The following information outlines how to enrol and the time commitment required to successfully complete the programme.
