THE APPLICATION FOR THE 2015-16 PROGRAMME

CLOSING DATE EXTENDED TO 09:00 HOURS ON TUESDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2015

PROGRAMME TO COMMENCE ON TUESDAY 13TH OCTOBER 2015


For further information on the Teaching Associate Programme (TAP) please visit our website.

The Teaching Associate Programme (TAP) is a year-long programme which supports early career researchers who have some responsibility for teaching and learning. TAP is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and, if you successfully complete all elements of the programme, you will become an Associate Fellow of the HEA. In order to be eligible for Associate Fellowship of the HEA, you will need to have a minimum of 40 hours’ experience of teaching and/or supporting learning.

Applications are open to Postdoctoral Researchers/Research Staff and PhD students in their 2nd year or above, from any subject area. Prior to applying for TAP we require you to have at least 20 hours of teaching and at least 20 more hours of confirmed teaching for the academic year to come. In this way, the programme enables you to reflect on your own current practice, to explore ideas and approaches for enhancing your teaching, and to think about your future development as a higher education professional. Only higher education (university-level) teaching experience can be considered.

The programme has a high level of flexibility and participants are expected to plan their TAP work to fit around other activities. However, there are several compulsory components which cannot be missed and those include: four seminars, teaching observations, tutorial and lecturing practical. Help and support is available throughout the year to enable students to get the best from the programme.


Aims:


- Experience a supported introduction to HE teaching
- Develop a thorough understanding of the theory and practice of small group teaching
- Build an understanding of the different ways in which students learn
- Participants will examine their role and responsibilities as a teacher
- Receive an introduction to lecturing preparation and practice
- Identify further training needs and opportunities
