Programme syllabus: Lecturer Training Programme

Aims

The Lecturer Training Program (LTP) aims at upgrading your pedagogical qualifications and teaching skills as a teacher at SDU. The main objective is to facilitate your individual professional development with a focus on reflecting on your own and others' teaching practices, giving and receiving constructive feedback and engaging in professional development.

Program outline

The LTP is nominated to 10 ECTS points (approximately 270 hours). We suggest that you try to complete the program within a year to ensure continuality and to keep everything fresh in memory. The LTP course is an individual learning and development process and therefore there is no mandatory completion time.

The residential represents the residential courses and an introduction to coaching. Throughout the full LTP program you will be part of a workgroup that includes an Supervisor with a background within the field of teaching and learning.

Different roles in the LTP program

  • Participant: That is, you
  • Supervisor: Is an external supervisor who will help with facilitation of supervision.
  • Workgroup: Is your colleague group for the residential and for supervision.
  • Local Mentor: Is an internal supervisor that will join the supervision and can help with the local interpretations of your profession’s teaching and learning practice.
  • Consultant: Is the assigned SDUUP consultant for your individual development projects and concluding dialogue
  • Program Leader: Is the coordinator for the whole program, from SDUUP (SDU Universitetspædagogik/Centre for Teaching and Learning).
