Additional YSJ Induction for academic staff
York St John University is committed to supporting new
academic staff so they feel they are prepared for teaching and
facilitating student learning. We also feel it is important that
you are aware of the local content and how the University is moving
forward with a variety of quality enhancement initiatives what will
promote the development of exceptional learning and teaching. To
this end we run a New Academic staff induction "Survival Guide to
Higher Education". This consists of 2.5 days of activities and
opportunities to meet teaching staff from across YSJ.
Day 1 (half day) introduces you to the quality
culture at York St John University. The Deputy Vice Chancellor
and the University Registrar will talk about the strategic vision
of the University and how we are working to improve the
quality of the student experience. The Head of Learning and
Teaching Development will share with you how we support your
individual professional development.
Day 2 is for those staff who are new to
teaching and covers managing in the classroom and the nuts and
bolts of assessment.
Day 3 is an opportunity for all new
staff to participate in three hands on workshops
about key information skills, Moodle (our VLE)
and Mahara (our e-portfolio) and the Media Library. Day three
also provides you with an opportunity to network and have lunch
with a number of YSJ University Teaching Fellows.
