developing learning and teaching (DLT)

If you have completed your departmental PLTO seminar (or Divisional PLTO workshop(s)), and expect to be undertaking some teaching at Oxford, you may want to consider completing the Developing Learning and Teaching (DLT) programme. This programme offers a way to make the most of your first teaching experiences in UK higher education. If completed in full it leads to a nationally-recognised qualification which is mapped to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education.

The DLT Programme for MPLS is led by the Oxford Learning Institute and comprises six interactive workshops spread across Michaelmas and Hilary Terms. As part of the Programme, participants will be required to engage in additional, related activities; for example, reading some educational literature, teaching evaluation and session design. The DLT Programme is assessed via a written reflective teaching portfolio (2,500-5,000 words); support for writing the portfolio is provided by the Oxford Learning Institute. 

In order to fully participate in the course you must have some experience of teaching in higher education and/or have a teaching commitment confirmed in Oxford for the near future.

To support participants at DLT level the MPLS Division provides a workshop series. Click here for details.
