This section gives complete listings of courses provided by the Institute or organised through the Institute.
Almost all the courses are optional, and staff are invited to request a place on any course that they wish to take. The course in Recruitment and Selection of staff is strongly recommended for anyone organising recruitment or taking part in selection, and is a university requirement for anyone chairing a selection panel for the University. Colleges generally require anyone involved in selecting students for admission as undergraduates to take the course in undergraduate admissions interviewing or else some equivalent.
Courses in educational development are normally delivered either by academic staff from the divisions or else by Institute staff and academics working together: the intention is to see that the courses properly address the conventions of teaching in different disciplines and that participants can benefit directly from the experience of academics in their subject area.
Most of the Institute's courses are 'stand-alone' sessions, but some are grouped to form structured programmes. Details of these programmes, and whether it is nevertheless possible to attend individual sessions within them, are given in the pages 'Programmes and resources'.
All university and college staff may take Institute courses free of charge. Other employees (e.g. in the NHS) who contribute to the work of the University are likewise accommodated whenever possible (see Eligibility under 'Requesting a place on a course').
