These resources are designed to help new tutors get a great start at UQ.

As a new tutor, we encourage you to participate in both:

  • Tutors@UQ program – a three-part face-to-face program (five hours of commitment in total) is run by individual schools and faculties prior to each semester and covers all essential tutor training. Note: you will be paid to attend this program.
  • Teaching online for tutors – a 3.5-hour online course that compliments the Tutors@UQ program. This online course is designed to prepare you for online teaching and learning, supporting and motivating students, creating an inclusive online learning environment and using UQ supported technology to enrich learning.

After being inducted to your new role, also check:

People who can help
