Making the case for Teaching

In consultation with the Provost, Associate Deans Learning and Teaching/Staffing – and drawign on the expertise of previous successful promotion applicants and members of local promotion committees, the ITL can offer workshops in Divisions and faculties to support promotion applicants in making their case for Teaching.

The sessions are held on request in the weeks following the Provost's briefing session. Please contact your Faculty's Associate Dean Learning and Teaching to request a session or find out more about support in your Faculty.
