An overview of possible CPD activities
As a member of UM teaching staff with a UTQ and a teaching load of more than 10% (equivalent to 160 hours per year for a full-time appointment), you are encouraged to reflect upon your development wishes and needs, so that you can plan your CPD. To help you develop new knowledge and skills relating to your teaching, your faculty as well as various other UM departments, including EDLAB, offer a range of activities that may be relevant for you.
EDLAB activities will be listed on this page as they become available as well as on Facebook or LinkedIn. These are continually being updated, so please check back regularly. New activities will also be communicated via your faculty CPD coordinators. Activities and support for teaching staff available from other UM departments are also listed below.
In addition to taking part in formal training activities, you may want to develop your own activities with colleagues, or undertake CPD in a more informal manner. This is fine so long as it suits your development plan and is approved by your manager or faculty CPD coordinator. Your CPD should also be relevant to the teaching competences outlined in this document. Note that standard duties (staff meetings or compulsory training as part of a regular teaching role) are not considered as CPD.
Please note that the funding for EDLAB’s CPD activities only covers UM teaching staff with a UTQ and a teaching load of more than 160 hours per year. This is because teaching staff who have not yet completed their UTQ have the opportunity to develop by following this trajectory first within your faculties. All UM staff (those with teaching as well as non-teaching positions) are also able to follow courses offered by the UM Staff Career Centre.
