The GTA Programme (GTAP) provides training and support to postgraduate researchers who are engaged as Graduate Teaching Assistants at Imperial. There are two core courses which discuss topics relevant to all GTAs at College:

  • Introduction to Learning and Teaching
  • Introduction to Assessment and Feedback for Learning

There are also optional courses which explore various questions related to learning and teaching, such as: How do I ensure all students feel valued and included during my lessons? How do I engage students in discussion? How can I facilitate active learning during lab demonstrations? How can I gain professional recognition for my teaching?

GTAP is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA), so programme participants are eligible to gain professional recognition in the form of an Associate Fellowship of the HEA (AFHEA).

Some Graduate School courses include pre-course activities for you to complete. Please check this page to find out how to self-enrol on the course’s Blackboard programme module, which will enable you to complete these activities.
