Staff Development

The Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology (EAIT) encourages a culture of continuous learning and performance improvement. The University Staff Development Program provides a range of programs, short courses and resources to enhance and develop staff teaching and learning skills. For more staff development activities, see the Staff Development Calendar.

Learning Enhancement Team

The Faculty offers support for staff with the uptake, development and evaluation of e-learning technologies, resources and pedagogies to enhance teaching quality and support students' learning in the faculty's coursework degree programs. The Learning Enhancement Team can offer support in Educational Design and Educational Research.

Mentoring and One-on-one Support

Support through mentoring is an important element of the TLDP. Staff mentoring pairs consist of a new or fairly new academic and an experienced teaching academic (usually from the same school). One-on-one support is also available to staff who have specific teaching and learning needs, such as addressing lower-than -expected SECaT scores or planning for course changes. For more information about mentoring or one-on-one support, contact Freya Mearns (f.mearns@uq.edu.au, +61 7 3365 3886).

Graduate Teaching Assistant Program

The Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) Program provides supportive and contextualised professional development for talented postgraduate students across the schools of engineering and interested postgraduate tutors from other UQ Schools. The GTA Program allows academics to make better use of postgraduates, encourages the next generation of excellent teachers and increases student engagement by bridging the gap between academics and students.  This program was originally developed within EAIT but will be offered by ITaLI from 2017.  For further information or enquiries, please refer to the ITaLI webpage at https://itali.uq.edu.au/professional-learning/new-teachers-and-tutors/gta.
