General workshops and networks and events

The Unit provides a range of workshops designed to support and progress your teaching practice at the College. We also run a number of educational networks and events throughout the year that interested Imperial staff are welcome to attend.

Postgraduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching (PG Cert ULT)

For those staff interested in more in-depth study, the EDU runs a three-stage approach to teaching and learning in the University setting. The first stage is our PG Cert ULT, a practice-centred flexible course that develops participants as reflective practitioners and builds on introduction to... workshops and participants' previous experience. In some cases, the PG Cert ULT may be completed in place of your Faculty-based requirements. Please speak to your Faculty contact in the first instance and then contact us (pgcertult@imperial.ac.uk) for more information on the programme itself.
