Mentoring and one-on-one support

Support through mentoring is an important element of the Teaching and Learning Development Program. 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 Dr Freya Mearns.

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.  The GTA program was originally developed within EAIT but is now offered by the Institute of Teaching and Learning Innovation.  

Visit ITaLI GTA for more information.
