Whether you are a new or experienced educator, walking into a classroom to teach can be daunting. At the Australian National University, Principles of Tutoring and Demonstrating (PTD) is an introductory program to help you familiarise yourself with important aspects of learning and teaching, in the context of tutoring and demonstrating. At ANU, in addition to knowing logistics like dates, forms, and policy, you will need to develop a sense of who you are as a teacher. How will you prepare and run your lessons? How will you make them engaging? What evidence informs your teaching and what resources will you rely upon? In PTD, we will address these questions and much more. The key aim of the program is to help you to be an effective and reflective teacher.
Please note that if enrolment numbers are high, priority may be given to those who are currently teaching. By signing up to this program you are committing to the full two hour session.
