Professional Development for Teaching & Learning

At EDLAB we work closely with UM teaching staff to help develop and implement innovative teaching practices and promote the quality of UM education. This is achieved through our various Innovation Projects, as well as through the many Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities we offer for teaching staff. Through courses, workshops, symposia, discussion panels and online resources UM staff can stay on top of their teaching game.

Our Activities


Continuing Professional Development

Complementing the training opportunities within the academic faculties, EDLAB offers a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities for UM teaching staff with a University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) and with a teaching load of greater than 160 hours per year . Our aim is to build a strong teaching community where staff can learn from and during their work in order to apply new educational knowledge and skills to the teaching tasks at hand. CPD offers opportunities for continuous learning and development whereby staff can make choices based on their developmental goals regarding what, when and how they learn.
