"The Australian National Research Student Survey (2011), noted that 45% of HDRs do some teaching during their doctorate[1] and an analysis of job advertisements shows that early-career applicants are expected to demonstrate their capacity to teach."  (Cathcart, Penhaligon and Ryan,n.d.)  

This session provides an introduction to the teaching and learning side of an academic career.   If you pursue an academic career then there will be teaching - particularly early in your career.

Using practical examples and case studies, the workshop will introduce you different types of learning and pedagogical approaches, common expectations associated with teaching positions and how teaching can impact on academic career progression. In providing an overview of what it means to teach in higher education, the session will help you determine whether being the academic life - including the teaching - is really for you.   

Following participation in this session, students who are interested in pursuing an academic career are encouraged to join the Tutors@UQ programme, provided by ITaLI.  Details of this program will be advised during the session.
