Tutoring and Demonstrating is support given to teaching programmes by Graduate Teaching Assistants.
Both the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes in the School of GeoSciences are strongly supported by Tutoring and Demonstrating (T&D).
Tutoring and Demonstrating (T&D) work incorporates several facets of teaching within the University. This could be practical, laboratory and field work, helping out at tutorials, acting as a course assistant or marking course assignments.
The participation of Research Postgraduate students in teaching is highly valued and, whilst not mandatory, we would encourage all research postgraduates to consider doing some teaching at some point during their time at the University. We hope that postgraduates find T&D work a rewarding experience.
Graduate Teaching Assistants are appointed and paid via the University’s ‘hours to be notified’ payment process.
Tutoring and demonstrating at the University also counts towards the generic skills training requirement. One morning or afternoon demonstrating is equivalent to one quarter of a day’s training.
