Advanced Studies in Learning and Teaching

Developing Learning and Teaching Qualification

The Developing Learning and Teaching qualification (DLT), is available to all research students and post-docs who are currently tutoring and are interested in deepening their understanding and knowledge of learning and teaching. 

The DLT is recognised by all UK universities, and is required for Associate Fellow status in the Higher Education Academy. Beyond the DLT, early career academics should consider the 'Teaching Fellowship' programme. Note that the Law Faculty PLTO programme is a prerequisite for the DLT qualification.

The DLT includes a series of teaching and learning seminars each term. For details and sign up, go to the Social Sciences Division Teaching Development Weblearn site.   In addition to covering issues related to teaching and learning, these sessions will prepare participants to produce portfolios which, if successful on examination, will allow them to apply to the Higher Education Academy for Associate Fellow Status. Details of the series can be found on the Centre for Teaching and Learning website.

This programme is aimed at doctoral students and early career researchers with limited teaching responsibilities.

Teaching Fellowship Preparation programme 

For those with more substantial teaching workloads (e.g. career development fellows, new university and departmental lecturers, etc) the Teaching Fellowship Preparation programme is more appropriate.  

This is held in the Oxford Learning Institute in Littlegate House, St Ebbe’s Street.  Further details may be found here
