A new section for PGTAs and early career teachers on the UCL Teaching and Learning Portal

19 September 2012

Early career teachers and postgraduate teaching assistants (PGTAs) are invited to contribute ideas for a new section of the Teaching and Learning Portal designed for staff who have recently begun (or are about to start) teaching at UCL. 

Students work together on a laptop

Individuals and groups are encouraged to work with Portal Editor Ele Cooper to create a section that will support new teachers across the UCL community and enrich student learning.

Ideas might include a 'top tips' section, guidance on who to turn to for advice, innovations in Moodle and other areas of e-learning and social media. Would a forum or blog be useful? If so, how would they be used; what topics would be covered? 

Contributions from longer-established staff are also welcomed. For example, a page covering what you know now that you wish you'd known at the start of your career could be very useful.

Although the section will continually grow and contributions will always be welcome, ideas for the first iteration should be submitted by Monday November 12th 2012.

Please send your ideas to Ele Cooper (; 020 7679 5992) and don't hesitate to get in contact if you'd like further information.
