The CECS Teaching and quality Program (TQP) is based on modules that make up the Principles of Tutoring and Demonstrating (PTD)
PTD is a course designed for those that tutor or demonstrate at the Australian National University, and is ideal for those wanting a broad introduction to university teaching in the context of tutoring and demonstrating. The key aim of the course is help tutors and demonstrators to be both effective and reflective in their role as tutors or demonstrator at ANU.
Participants of PTD are usually early-career academics with some teaching responsibilities (e.g. PhD student, graduate training assistant, contract post-doc); new to HE teaching, have a limited teaching portfolio or teach part-time or have a role as a demonstrator/technician with some teaching responsibilities, or support teaching/learning (e.g. as a learning technologist or learning resource staff member).
