Induction and Training

The University and the Faculty of Arts offer several options for training and support for casual academics, tutors and new convenors.

Guides for Tutors

If you don't have access to the iLearn course, please contact the Arts L&T team

Additional training resources:

  • Additional training workshops are run by the Faculty during the session, targeted at new tutors, according to demand.
  • There are several self-paced courses and workshops on Workday you will have to complete.
  • Beginning to Teach is a 12-hour program designed to develop the teaching capability of those with limited or no experience of teaching.

Guides for Convenors

The iLearn unit Arts Teaching Fundamentals provides online guidance and information for new and experienced Unit Convenors.
