Modern university teaching requires an essential toolkit that can be effectively deployed in different educational contexts as students increasingly learn through a mix of online and on-campus interactions. The Teaching@UQ program assists staff in creatively connecting curriculum, pedagogy and assessment to foster active student participation and learning. Teaching@UQ has been developed in the context of UQ’s policies and the Academic Annual Performance Development (APD) process. 

Overview and Completion

The program includes a series of modules. Each module involves two hours of online activities and participation in a 2-hour workshop. 

Successful completion of the program involves active participation in online activities, undertaking workshops (with peer feedback) and passing a final assessment task. Upon completing the program, participants receive a certificate and their Workday course details are updated.


Teaching@UQ has two streams to accommodate UQ’s diverse academic community. Both streams begin together in the first two workshops, then split into separate sessions before coming together for the final workshop. All participants enrol in the same program, and then sign to streams in the first workshops.

1. Teaching@UQ (Teaching as Researchers stream)

This stream is for Research-Focused (RF) academics seeking out teaching opportunities. It is recommended for post-doctoral and research fellows at Levels A-B.

2. Teaching@UQ (Extended stream)

This stream is for Teaching and Research (TR), Teaching Focused (TF), Clinical Academics (CA) and Teaching Associates (TA) with course coordination or substantial teaching roles in courses. It is recommended for RF academics at levels C-E.


The program is offered 3 times per year. Confirmation of each offering is dependent on sufficient enrolment numbers.
