Tutor development

At Te Puna Ako Centre for Tertiary Teaching and Learning, we provide training, resources, and support to casual or part-time tutors, demonstrators and sessional assistants.

Introduction to Tutoring Programme

Are you new to casual tutoring at the University of Waikato? Have you tutored before, but would like a refresher? If so, join us for our self-paced tutoring programme. In 2023, we have five self-paced modules available. You can also sign up for our Tutoring Mailing List to hear about workshops and events throughout the year.

The online modules are:

  1. Module 1: The Professional Sessional
  2. Module 2: Planning a session
  3. Module 3: Classroom Strategies
  4. Module 4: Feedback and marking
  5. Module 5: Growth and support

If you are a new tutor, and you complete the Modules or participate in the introductory workshops, you can claim paid time. We suggest you allow around 2.5 hours to complete the modules.
