This module provides an induction to laboratory demonstration, grading, tutorials and feedback provision. It is compulsory for postgraduates who volunteer to work as Teaching Assistants (TA) in the School of Chemistry. This module should be taken concomitantly with Orientation to Teaching and Demonstration 1 (OTD 1, available online). The module aims to explain and practise the theory and practice of all aspects of laboratory demonstration, report grading and tutorial/workshop support.
This course is mandatory for prospective teaching laboratory demonstrators. A similarly titled faculty course dealing with non-chemistry specific demonstrator training is not sufficient.
