Seminar Series for Post-doctoral Research Fellows
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 in three sessions, each being three hours in duration, with some follow-up tasks/activities to be undertaken in the intervening times. 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
On completion of these seminars one should be able to:
- Appraise a range of teaching, learning and assessment methods
- Demonstrate a critical understanding of some of the basic principles and practices of third level teaching and learning
- Demonstrate the use of universal design in the course of teaching
- Develop a teaching practice portfolio.
