Training for PGTAs continues remotely
20 May 2020
UCL Arena Centre is offering training for PGTAs online as a distance learning course.
UCL Arena One is a development pathway for postgraduate students who teach (PGTAs) at UCL. It can lead, optionally, to the submission of an application to become an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
How to register
Step one: Gateway workshop
Arena One begins with an introductory Gateway workshop, designed to prepare you for your teaching responsibilities and introduce you to approaches to teaching and learning.
- One, three-hour workshop
Step two: The Teaching Associate Programme (TAP)
Once you have completed a Gateway session (or equivalent), you then have the opportunity to join the second stage of Arena One: the Teaching Associate Programme.
This is an intensive course running over a week. It requires on average:
- 3.5 hour of work per day
- One 90-minute synchronous session with peers and tutors
The course is hands-on and highly interactive and participants have the opportunity to tailor the content to their needs and teaching contexts.
