Teaching & Learning

Continuing Professional Learning

Professional development is a key part of any work, and when it comes to teaching, engaging in continuing professional learning enables us to ensure that we are providing our students with the highest quality learning opportunities that we can.

There are many activities which will support you in your continuing professional learning for teaching, and it is not limited to formal study. The resources and activities linked to here provide information and advice around some of the activities which are managed by or supported by the Professional Learning Team.

University staff should access the Professional Learning intranet site for upcoming events and access to professional learning resources.

Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs)

The University will be transitioning to a new capability framework which is to be launched in 2021. Information about the Teaching Performance Expectations is provided for reference during this transition period.

UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF)

University of Tasmania staff are able to gain external recognition for quality and innovation in their teaching practice through Advance HE's fellowship program. The University of Tasmania remains in partnership with Advance HE as an Access member from 2020.
