La Trobe University is committed to providing students with quality teaching to maximise their learning engagement and success. To help achieve this, La Trobe Learning and Teaching (LTLT) offers blended-mode and online development opportunities for staff.
La Trobe Sessional Teaching Module
If you are a new sessional staff member, you should complete the La Trobe Sessional Teaching Module (LTU_SM – La Trobe Sessional Teaching Module) in preparation for teaching. We encourage you to revisit this site often, to explore the resources and to take part in the ongoing discussion forums.
Schools and Departments offer discipline-specific professional development activities for all academic staff. Contact your School or Department representative for details.
Effective Teaching Workshops
The Effective Teaching Workshops provides academic staff with an introduction to teaching at La Trobe.
You will meet and collaborate with other new staff members on modules about La Trobe teaching policies and strategies, subject and assessment design, supporting student learning, professional development, and evaluation and feedback. To help put these ideas into practice you will also develop a folio of activities, strategies and resources to take away with you.
The workshop is offered in blended mode, providing you with a model of practice and a forum for discussion on this form of delivery. You will complete:
- An online component of 4-6 hours (link to the module provided upon registration)
- A one day face-to-face component
