EDU workshops for new lecturers
As a new lecturer at Imperial College, you are required to commplete three of the 'Introduction to' workshops as part of your probation requirements. In addition to this, the Educational Development Unit provides a range of other workshops designed to support and progress your teaching practice at the College.
Faculty specific training
You may also be required to complete faculty specific training. The EDU is not directly involved with these probationary requirements so please see the links below for more information as well as details of the relevant contacts within your faculty.
You may be interested in the Postgraduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching (PG Cert ULT)
For those staff interested in more in-depth study, the Educational Development Unit 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 the 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 for more information on the programme.
