Grad Teacher Training (PLTO) and lunchtime session on Lecture and Seminar Teaching
Tuesday and Wednesday Week 6 Trinity Term
The PLTO is designed for grad students nearing the end of their first year of research. It begins on Tuesday morning with a general session for all participants on teaching Law tutorials. Optional sessions on teaching in various subject areas (private law, public law, jurisprudence, EU law, and international public law) follow on Tuesday and Wednesday. Grad students who attend the general session and at least one subject area session will receive a certificate and have their name added to the Faculty's Teaching Register. Attendance is compulsory for any grad students who wish to apply for a Faculty GTA position.
There will also be a lunchtime session on Lecture and Seminar Teaching on Tuesday of Week 6, for faculty members (and grad students attending the PLTO) to share their teaching experience and learn about developments that may facilitate the teaching and learning experience.
The PLTO is a prerequisite for the Developing Learning and Teaching (DLT) qualification, which is available to all research students and post-docs who are currently tutoring. The DLT is recognised by all UK universities, and is required for Associate Fellow status in the Higher Education Academy.
