The Developing Learning and Teaching (DLT) Programme for Medical Sciences is an accredited Programme led by the Oxford Learning Institute. The DLT is designed for anyone new to teaching who wishes to improve their effectiveness, share experiences with peers and learn more about learning and teaching in the sciences. Third and fourth year graduate research students and postdoctoral researchers with a serious interest in an academic career may find it particularly useful as a structured introduction to teaching.

The DLT Programme comprises a series of taught, interactive workshops (approx. 8 hours contact time), commencing in Hilary Term. Participants will be required to engage in additional, related activities; for example, reading some educational literature, teaching evaluation and session design. The DLT Programme is assessed via a written reflective teaching portfolio (2,500-5,000 words); support for writing the portfolio is provided by the Oxford Learning Institute. Successful completion of the DLT Programme and portfolio assessment leads to a nationally-recognised teaching qualification which is mapped to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education.

In order to participate in the course you must have attended a Preparation for Learning and Teaching at Oxford (‘PLTO’) seminar/workshop and be teaching at Oxford (or have a teaching commitment confirmed in Oxford for the near future).
