Writing a Teaching Philosophy – Workshop
Date: Monday 3rd December
What is a teaching philosophy? Have you ever thought about writing a teaching philosophy?
This workshop will enable participants to learn the basic principles of writing a philosophy which is a self-reflective statement of your beliefs in learning and teaching. This is useful when reflecting on current learning and teaching practices and when applying for promotion, teaching awards and fellowships.
Tracy Douglas and Jo-Anne Kelder will be facilitating this workshop, organised by the Tasmanian branch of HERDSA and TILT.
The workshop will be facilitated in both Hobart and Launceston with links to other campuses according to demand. The venues for the workshop are:
Hobart: Centen 132 - Harvard Room 1 (Sandy Bay campus)
Launceston: A023 (Newnham campus)
To register for this workshop please email Awards.Grants@utas.edu.au by 5pm Thursday 29th November. In your email please state which venue you will be attending: Hobart, Launceston or other.
Learning and Teaching
We work with staff individually and in teams to ensure the quality design and delivery of our units and courses. We offer both formal and informal support for quality enhancements and assurance, including the Bachelor of Education with Professional Honours (Higher Education).
We provide self-paced resources designed to support you with your teaching practice, new unit and course design, application for awards, grants and fellowships, and more. These resources are available from our websites and MyLO sites.
Awards, Grants and Fellowships
We provide dedicated support for the development of applications for institutional and national Awards, Grants and Fellowships.
Higher Education Academy Fellowships
We now offer accredited pathways to being recognised as an Associate Fellow, Fellow, Senior Fellow or Principle Fellow of the HEA. This international recognition of your teaching and learning practice is aligned with the TPEs, and is being increasingly taken up across Australian Institutions.
We offer workshops addressing a wide range of information and skills related to the provision of quality learning and teaching in Higher Education. These workshops are presented by leaders in the field from around Australia, in addition to our dedicated staff here at UTAS.
Every year the Tasmanian Institute of Learning and Teaching hosts an internal conference that offers UTAS staff the opportunity to showcase their teaching practice.
