You’re invited: UC Teaching Month 2-30 July 2018

In keeping with UC’s commitment to providing a world-class environment for the next generation of researchers and graduates, the Academic Services Group are proud to launch UC Teaching Month next Monday, 2 July.

Expanding on UC Teaching Week held in previous years, Teaching Month is a series of informative workshops that allow staff to pick up technical skills and teaching tips, research supervision advice or learn how to apply for funding.

Workshops will be held over the mid-year break and during teaching time to allow more staff to attend – attendance can even be logged on Elements to support your future promotion application.  

For Assistant Vice-Chancellor | Amokapua Akoranga Professor Catherine Moran, UC Teaching Month is about taking time to reflect.

“Teaching is so much a part of our fundamental practice that sometimes we can forget to step back and share and celebrate what we do. Teaching month is an opportunity to do just that.”

Teaching Month will be officially opened by Vice-Chancellor | Tumu Whakarae Dr Rod Carr , who will be taking this opportunity to recognise the winners of the 2018 UC Teaching Awards:

Come along to celebrate our winners, and hear them discuss their own philosophies.

Teaching Month is an opportunity for you to further your professional development, connect over coffee and biscuits and come away refreshed and ready for Semester Two.

“It is through you that our students ultimately are critically competent in the core academic discipline of their degree.” Professor Moran continues.

“The range of presentations and symposia being offered by our own staff to their colleagues, is a testament of the commitment of our staff to the students, and each other.”
