Teaching experience as an Associate Tutor can help to develop a broad range of personal and presentational skills. The Department values the contribution that graduate students can make, while acknowledging that students need to prioritise completing their research within the allocated timeframe.
The Sheffield Teaching Assistant
If you’re interested in developing your teaching skills, there are professional development workshops available to provide you with invaluable support and skills. The workshops are fully integrated with the DDP.
Training for associate tutors is provided in the Department for those teaching on our first year options.
The following modules are offered at level one of our BA programmes:
- HST112 Paths from Antiquity to Modernity
- HST115 The 'Disenchantment' of Early Modern Europe, c. 1570-1770
- HST116 Empire: From the Ancient World to the Middle Ages
- HST117 The Making of the Twentieth Century
- HST118 American History: From Settlements to Superpower
- HST119 The Transformation of Britain, 1800 to the Present
Please note that a selection of these modules will run each year.
How much teaching can I do?
We recommend looking at gaining teaching experience from year two, when we recommend teaching be limited to 3 groups per week.
Teaching opportunities are advertised in approximately April each year. Applications will need to have the support of one referee, usually your supervisor, to ensure that your studies will not be disrupted by any allocated teaching.
