Getting Started at SUSS

As part of our efforts to promulgate excellence in teaching, all new Associates and Faculty will be invited to engage in TLC's 
obligatory Fundamentals in Teaching & Learning (FTL) series.

The FTL series include three obligatory engagements: AD108 Foundations in Learning and Teaching in SUSS, AD110 Beginning Faculty Forum, and AD121 T&L Conversation. Together, the three engagements are designed to equip new Associates and Faculty with foundational knowledge essential for effective teaching in the unique SUSS academic landscape. The AD110 forum and AD121 conversation seek to also provide a dialogical platform for new Associates and Faculty to collaborate, engage in peer learning, and enculture into the teaching community.

All engagements within the obligatory FTL series for new Associates are to be completed within the first year of deployment, and for new Faculty, within the first year of employment. Starting from January 2021, TLC will support all new Associates and Faculty throughout the series as part of our dedication to strengthen professional growth and enable teaching excellence.

These are sessions conducted by the Deans / Heads of Programme from the respective Schools in which you have been deployed to teach. They can be in the form of briefing / debrief sessions, course-specific training or role-specific training such as for examination markers and course developers.

The purpose varies with the nature of the session:

  1. Welcome and orientate new Associates for teaching in SUSS
  2. Gather feedback on students, and course content and delivery from Associates
  3. Highlight changes in course content where the course is revamped
  4. Brief associates on important aspects of their roles and sharing of recommended practices

These sessions are conducted year-round. Representatives from the respective Schools will contact you regarding the nature and details of the school training sessions (varies according to Schools). Attendance taken during the session, and/or successful passing of the relevant quizzes, will represent completion of this mandatory training.

Note: Graduate programme deployments do not need to undergo School Specific Training.
