New to Teaching at MMU

new to teaching at MMU

Welcome to MMU, this page is to help you as a new academic staff member get to get to know the learning and teaching community here at MMU and identify CPD opportunities and professional services that can support your practice. There are many ways in which you can get involved with CELT, develop your practice and contribute to collegial conversations with other teachers at MMU.

The professional development Route Planner link below summarises the CPD options available to you and contains a link to a brief diagnostic that will help you and your line manager to decide on the most appropriate provision for your professional development. The resources section of this website focuses on practical techniques for planning and delivering your teaching and assessment activities. You may also find our section on the MMU Strategy for Learning, Teaching and Assessment useful.
