PDP-T aims to provide a collegial environment for early career academics to explore and reflect critically on their teaching practice with the aim of improving the quality of their students' learning
This programme is offered to NUS early-career academics, typically those with fewer than 3 years full-time teaching experience in higher education. It provides a collegial environment to explore and reflect critically on participants’ teaching practice with the aim of improving the quality of their students’ learning. The programme introduces a variety of topics to help develop and refine fundamental, research-informed, evidence-based teaching skills and strategies. It also serves to assist faculty in preparing for promotion and tenure.
The Professional Development Programme—Teaching (PDP-T) consists of three components: a Core module, Elective Workshops, and Teaching Practicum. By the end of the programme you should be able to:
While it is advisable to complete the PDP-T before your contract renewal review, we strongly recommend spreading your participation in all of the components over several terms. This spreading is recommended because (1) this will make the relative time commitment for each term less and (2) it is beneficial to be involved in various activities throughout the span of your early development as a teacher at NUS.
