GTA Introduction to Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (GTA ILTHE)

The Graduate Teaching Assistant Introduction to Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (GTA ILTHE) sessions are statutory training provided as an introduction for new tutors, GTAs and demonstrators at the University. This training is a requirement and a once only class for GTAs during their time teaching at the University of Glasgow. It is part of GTA development and will complement the additional training that GTAs should receive from their School/College. 

2018-19 Session

The training involves a blended approach, requiring that GTAs complete an online element prior to attending a face-to-face training session. These face-to-face sessions last for upto 3 hours and are scheduled for a range of dates across both semesters during the 2018/19 academic session. They are released on a rolling basis.

In order to enrol for a GTA ILTHE session, participants MUST first complete the online GTA ILTHE Moodle course that can be accessed here.

After completing this online material then GTAs can sign up for one of the face-to-face sessions via the Moodle page. It is attendance at the face-to-face session that is used to gauge successful completion of the GTA ILTHE training.

NB: We ask that participants please check their Eventbrite email confirmation to identify the specific venue for their training session.

Further Information

Please note that this training is only available to registered GTAs within the University of Glasgow.  Anyone unsure of their eligibility should contact their School/Institute directly.

We also require that anyone who enrols for a session must use their Glasgow email address and their GUID for the online element of the training.
