OTD Step 2 - online workshop

Students in lecture

The second step in your Orientation to Teaching/Demonstrating is attendance at an online workshop.

Who is this session for?

The OTD Step 2 online workshop is provided for all doctoral researchers who do not have access to teacher/demonstrator training locally within their own Academic Unit (see below for alternative local courses).

The session builds on material covered in the online course in OTD Step 1.   You will be asked to have your NOTES from the online course to hand for reference and so you can work on questions during the online workshop.

The focus will be very practical, comprising small group work, plenary discussions, and personal reflection. 

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the OTD Step 2 session you will have:

Throughout the session you will have the opportunity to reflect on your own contributions and those of others, including the facilitators!  You could use these observations as the basis of a professional portfolio of evidence of your work as an educator.  

Alternative provision for some disciplines

The following disciplines run their own training which is equivalent to OTD Step 2:

Chemistry

Biological Sciences - Tuesday 12th October 2021, 10:00-13:00 - School of Biological Sciences PGRs (Highfield Campus)

Engineering - Wednesday 27th October 2021, 10:00-12:30 - School of Engineering PGRs (MS Teams)
                       
Wednesday 19th January 2022, 10:00-12:300 - School of Engineering PGRs (MS Teams)

Business School - Thursday 18th November 2021, 13:00-15:00 and Thursday 25th November 2021, 13:00-15:00 - Highfield Campus (You must attend both sessions and also complete an assessed microteaching session to be eligible for teaching in Southampton Business school)

However, you will still find OTD Step 1 (online course) useful, and we encourage you to use this alongside your local course.
