Development Tutor Scheme

The Development Tutor Scheme offers PGRs across the University an opportunity to gain training and paid part-time opportunities within the LDC Development programme. You may assist in the LDC Development team to run their workshops or webinars and  you can organise and run your own workshop or webinars, with the support of the LDC Development team

The scheme will help you gain valuable skills for your CV, experience in facilitation techniques for University teaching, for both face-to-face and online delivery, and also the opportunity to significantly shape and contribute to the research environment for postgraduate researchers.

The scheme is open to all post-graduate researchers at Livepool who have completed one year of their PhD.

Accompanying Workshops

This programme is enhanced by the following workshops on facilitation. The workshops are open to all PGRs, whether or not they are on the Development Tutor Scheme, but most applicants to the scheme will be expected to have attended most of these workshops,.

  1. Webinar: Introduction to Facilitation
  2. Becoming a Facilitator
  3. Webinar: Designing Workshops
  4. Facilitating Workshops

'Becoming a Facilitator' and 'Facilitating Workshops' are both half-day workshops and you will be expected to attend the preceding webinar prior to your attendance at the workshop, although both webinars will be recorded.

Upcoming dates and further details for the above workshops will be available on the LDC Development programme timetable.
