Workshop Name An Introduction to University Teaching
About Workshop This two and a half day event is designed to support recently appointed academic teaching staff from all of Otago’s campuses (confirmation track and professional practice fellows), and will be of particular interest to those who are new to university teaching or to those requiring a refresher course on teaching in higher education. It is designed for those who have, or expect to have, considerable input in to course-design, student-assessment and paper-coordination. (Please note that other HEDC programmes will be more suitable for those with other teaching responsibilities, such as tutors).

The workshop begins on Tuesday 28th January 2020 with an early evening reception and a chance to meet the other attendees and the facilitators. On day two (Wednesday 29th January 2020) there is an informal dinner in the University staff club – 6 pm for a 6.30pm start (fully funded by HEDC).

Teas and lunches are provided during the workshop, so please advise us if you have special dietary requirements and if you are unable to attend the lunches or either of the evening events. (Email

We do have some travel and accommodation funding to support staff from other campuses to attend. Please contact Trilby ( to help with these arrangements.

(HEDC's seminar room is located upstairs and access is by stairs. If this will make access impossible for you, please email
