A training programme specially designed to help TAs perform more effectively in their role. The programme aims to review sound educational principles and practices and their application to teaching.
PDP-T is offered to early-career academics, typically those with fewer than 3 years full-time teaching experience in higher education. It provides a collegial environment to explore and reflect critically on participants’ teaching practice with the aim of improving the quality of their students’ learning.
In this current issue of AJSoTL - Vol. 6 No. 2, the focus is on “Teacher Engagement”, or rather “Engaged Teaching”. The concept of engaged teaching is perhaps relatively new, compared to student engagement in the SoTL literature.
