Teaching Administrator Conference 2013 report
22 April 2013
Stefanie Anyadi, a member of the Teaching Administrator Conference Organising Committee, reports on this year's conference.
The UCL Teaching Administrator Conference took place on 19 April 2013, with a record attendance of approximately 140 Teaching Administrators from departments across UCL along with colleagues from Registry and Academic Services, UCLU, ISD, CALT, the Careers Service, Alumni Relations and others.
This was the fourth annual event organised by Teaching Administrators for Teaching Administrators. TAs support degree programmes and modules at departmental level and the nature of their work requires close contact with academic staff, students and central divisions. The importance of this group of staff for UCL’s efforts to continuously improve the student experience is recognised at the highest level.
The event was introduced by Professor Anthony Smith, Vice-Provost (Education), and included presentations from E-learning Environments (ELE) and the Digital Department project. Workshops covered a wide range of areas and gave participants and, in some cases, student representatives, the opportunity to discuss issues, exchange ideas for good practice and plan improvements. Colleagues have, for example, come away with ideas on how to improve webpages for prospective students, how to improve the support for students with mental health issues and how online marking can be made easier for academic colleagues.
Resources and details of planned actions a result of workshop discussions will be shared via the online Teaching Administrator Forum.
The 2013 Teaching Administrator Conference was funded by a grant from the Vice-Provost Education and the Digital Department project.
