All new full-time staff with regular teaching responsibilities are welcome to the programme “Introduction to University Teaching (IUT)”.
New staff who meet the following criteria can be exempted:
- Possess at least one year of full-time teaching experience at an university at Lecturer/Assistant Professor level or above, or
- Have received teacher training equivalent to IUT (at least 20 hours on topics that focus on the teaching and learning process)
The policy document can be found at here.
New teachers who have met the criteria and wish to be exempted should fill out the Online Exemption Declaration Form (PolyU VPN access is required if you try to access this form out of campus). The system will send a copy to the respective teacher’s Head of Department, and a copy to EDC for programme planning purposes.
Those who have met the criteria but wish to attend the programme are most welcome to enrol!
