UCD Teaching & Learning provides a dedicated seminar series for post-doctoral and research fellows. The aim of these seminars is to introduce participants to the key concepts underpinning good practice in third-level teaching and learning, and to enable them to review and prepare to undertake some basic teaching activities.
The structure of the programme offers a number of opportunities for the individual to engage in core aspects of academic practice and to begin to build a professional teaching portfolio.
The seminars will take place across two full days, followed by a peer-review session. At the core of these sessions is the opportunity for participants to engage, negotiate and participate, where possible in a range of teaching and learning activities. For more information consult the Seminar Series for Post Doctoral Research Fellows Handbook 2019-20
