The procedures below replace the former College requirements for the completion of CASLAT. Procedures are summarised below for both new lecturers and lecturers who have undertaken some teacher training under the CASLAT programme.
The collated information of workshops and peer observations will be used as evidence of fulfilment of the teacher training requirements. A mid-probation review will be undertaken during year 2 of probation. This will involve the Academic Adviser and Director of Undergraduate Studies.
The Faculty of Engineering teacher training requirements for probationary lecturers (3-year probationary period) are as follows:
1. The attendance of three one-day workshops run by the Educational Development Unit (EDU):
- Introduction to Teaching and Learning
- Introduction to Supervising PhD Students at Imperial
- Introduction to Personal Tutoring at Imperial
The workshops are run several times a year.
2. The attendance of a half-day Faculty of Engineering workshop on Engineering Education (two workshops run annually)
3. Peer observations:
