If you're intending to look for/ start work as a lab demonstrator, tutor or class assistant, then you may wish attend a workshop in the Oxford Preparing for Learning and Teaching programme.

Course Details

 If you’re intending to look for/ start work as a demonstrator in the next term or so, and/or you’d like to learn more about how to demonstrate effectively, then this hands-on workshop is for you. In it, you’ll work with your peers to:

  • learn about lab demonstrating in the Oxford science/engineering context;
  • think about the purposes of undergraduate labs; and
  • develop your own demonstrating skills.
You may also wish to attend the course for Tutors and Class Assistants. If so, please be aware that there is a small amount of duplicated material across both courses. 

Intended for

Graduate research students and postdoctoral researchers

Please note that these workshops count as MPLS’s PLTO training if your department does not offer its own version of the PLTO. You should check what training your department requires you to complete before you take on a teaching role.
