Welcome to New Staff

Welcome to teaching at the University of Sydney. The Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL) is the academic development unit of the University and we work with the University community to enhance and help assure the quality of teaching, student learning and curriculum.

This University places a high priority on quality teaching and learning outcomes and we look forward to working with new staff at all levels of experience.

New academic staff usually complete the first of the ITL programs, the 'Principles and Practice of University Teaching and Learning’ program as part of their Probationary requirements set by the University. This program is offered several times a year and we look forward to meeting you at one of these soon.

Many faculties also offer new staff orientation activities which may form part of the Principles and Practice Program. Several faculties also offer specialist orientation workshops for new Tutors and other Sessional staff.

If you would like to discuss your personal academic development needs please contact the ITL on 9351 3725 or your faculty Associate Dean Learning and Teaching.
