Tasmanian Institute of Learning & Teaching

Learning and Teaching

TILT is responsible for the authorship of the Teaching and Learning website, which is the main portal for information, examples, and policies relating to the University of Tasmania's approach to Learning and Teaching. It has been written specifically for UTAS teaching staff, to assist and guide them in the design and delivery of their units of study.

Go to the Teaching and Learning website.

TILT staff are available, on request, to conduct tailored workshops to assist teaching staff in developing the skills and knowledge required to provide students with quality learning experiences. Such workshops will also enable staff to meet their Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs). 

In addition, TILT often hosts and/or conducts open workshops and seminars for all staff that focus on topical issues and emerging skill areas.

Learn more about opportunities to participate in both of these workshop types on the Workshops page.

Opportunities for formal qualifications in University Learning and Teaching are provided through enrolment and completion of (up to eight) units in the Bachelor of Education with Professional Honours (Higher Education). This program is offered by the Faculty of Education through TILT. It is possible to exit the course after completion of four units (which must include ELT501 and ELT502), with a Graduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching, and eligibility for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

Find out more on the BEPHHE and GradCert ULT page.

TILT can assist you to receive formal recognition of your teaching practice through fellowships of the HEA. In addition to the accreditation of ELT501 for Associate Fellowships, and the Grad Cert ULT for Fellowships, an accredited Peer Professional Learning Program can support your application for Senior Fellowship or Principal Fellowships.

Find out more on the UKPSF page (on the Teaching and Learning website).

As the University of Tasmania now uses the UTAS Blended Learning Model for all units, being able to use MyLO effectively to provide students with access to high quality resources and to foster interactions with and between students is an essential skill for teaching staff. To support and guide staff in their use of MyLO, TILT provides access for all teaching staff to Teaching Online in MyLO.

If you are employed by UTAS but are unable to access this MyLO site, please contact the Service Desk and ask to be added as a student to Teaching Online in MyLO (a full year unit).
