LTHE Stage 1

LTHE Stage 1

LTHE Stage 1 forms the minimum requirement for postgraduate research students (PGRs) who teach or support students at the University of Exeter, for example in their work as Postgraduate Teaching Assistants (PTAs).  This is described further in the University’s TQA (Teaching Quality Assurance) Manual’s Code of Good Practice: Employment of Postgraduate Research Students

This one-day course, offered in the Autumn and Spring Terms each year, will provide an introduction to a range of principles of teaching and learning. 

It is designed to develop your understanding and skills for learning and teaching in Higher Education in relation to your subject area and PTA role.  It will encourage you to make connections between your own experience, the experience of others, and existing education scholarship. 

You will have the opportunity to explore the knowledge, understanding, skills and values needed to enable students to learn effectively in a modern Higher Education environment. You will also be able to ‘practise’ teaching in a short micro-teaching activity, and gain constructive feedback from your peers.
