A guide for all new staff who teach

Teach at Dundee

Academic Staff Induction

Delivered by the Academic Skills Centre (part of Student Services Directorate)

A warm welcome to the University of Dundee!

"My name is Lorraine Anderson and I'm the Head of the Academic Skills Centre (or ASC), which is the team that has developed this Teach at Dundee guide.

We're looking forward to working with you as a group of colleagues, going forward into what will be a different kind of academic year for all of us. Some of you may already be familiar with our campus and what it's like to feel part of the University of Dundee, but some of you will not have had that opportunity as yet.

Teach at Dundee aims to support you in feeling part of the wider University and we hope that the design of this guide, with its accompanying resources and information sessions that we'll be holding throughout the year, and our ongoing support for you as a community of practice will help you to do this."

About this guide

The guide is aimed at all staff engaged in teaching who have recently joined the University and should be used in conjunction with the Staff Handbook provided to you by Human Resources. You will find it contains a wealth of information about everything you need to know – from the history of the institution, to professional development, to support for your wellbeing (including where to get the best cup of coffee on campus!). Whether you are an experienced lecturer, or in your first teaching role, this guide will help you discover what is unique about this University’s vision and culture, as well highlighting the extensive resources and services available to support both you and your teaching.

We've tried to cover the things you will most likely need to know but if there is something we have missed out let us know and we'll include it.
