Do you want to learn more about how to become an effective teacher in Higher Education? In this programme, learn how to articulate specifications for learning outcomes, explain how to assess student learning, describe the differences between curriculum design and instructional design and understand the functions of, and distinguish between, formative and summative assessments. No previous teaching experience is required.

Please note: This programme is primarily aimed at Postgraduate Research students given that they are often required to teach as part of their PhD. Postgraduate Taught (Master's) students who have a specific teaching role may request a place on the programme by emailing pg.skills@qub.ac.uk and outlining the teaching role they are currently in and how this programme could support that role. These requests will be assessed on an individual basis and will be subject to the number of spaces available on the programme.

Meet the Consultant

This programme will be led by Dr Lilian Simones, Researcher Development Consultant at the Graduate School. Dr Simones supports and guides PhD students and early career researchers and helps them to navigate the next steps in their chosen career paths. An experienced researcher, Lilian has a multidisciplinary background, combining Psychology, Education, Gesture Studies and Music.
