Supporting Learning and Teaching @Lingnan
In September 2022, TLC will be launching its new core professional development programme SLT@LU (Supporting Learning and Teaching @Lingnan). This programme is designed for Lingnan University staff and is mandatory for postgraduate students who teach or support learning. It aims to provide a firm foundation in educational principles and practice in the context and tradition of liberal arts education. There is a strong focus in the programme on equipping participants to design quality learning sessions.
The 26-hour programme has three modules through which participants will be guided and supported:
