Postgraduate Research Students – Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (TSLHE)
Postgraduate research students can attend the Professional Teaching Scheme (PTS) Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (TSLHE) course. This course is mandatory for all postgraduate students who are required to teach (i.e. as a condition of scholarships) or who want to teach.
Attendance at the first session will result in the postgraduate student being placed on a ‘teaching register’. This register will be maintained by CLE and shared with Heads of Department on a regular basis.
To remain on the register the student will need to attend session 1 (on 25th Jan.), session 2 and/or 3, engage in micro-teaching and peer observation and complete all the required on-line activities.
- The students’ Director of Studies must give permission and act as a reference on the application form. The Director of Studies is responsible for monitoring the progress of the student and ensuring that the TSLHE and any associated teaching duty does not impact on their research degree.
- The research institute (BMRI) will make efforts to supporting postgraduate research students with opportunities to engage in activities related to teaching and/or supporting learning. BMRI will collect the list of registered students and send to HoDs.
- International students must not be working more than 20 hours per week
In addition to the three face-to-face sessions, students are required to attend more guided online learning sessions. Details are included in the BREO Announcement.
We need a minimum of 20 students to run this session. PGR students from BMRI and INTOUR interested in participating in these sessions are required to register online using this Eventbrite link on or before Friday 06th January 2017.
