Postgraduates Who Teach (PGwT)

Postgraduates who Teach (PGwT) is a two-day course aimed at introducing postgraduate students to the key messages around teaching, learning, assessment and feedback in Scottish higher education.

Working in a collegial, interdisciplinary fashion, participants will gain hands-on experience in dealing with the roles and boundaries around being a postgraduate who teaches, while getting the chance to practise their presentation techniques through a peer assessed microteaching session.  

Dates of PGwT sessions will be announced through the Doctoral College's regular emails about training and development opportunities.  For more information about PGwT, contact Claire Mackie (
