ASDP teaching workshops

In addition to the Introduction to University Teaching modules, teaching staff can access a suite of short, focused workshops on different teaching topics, delivered by St Andrews academics, for academics.  These workshops are part of the Academic Staff Development Programme co-ordinated by Organisational and Staff Development Service (OSDS).  All workshops that are currently live and available for booking are hyperlinked directly to the University online booking system (PDMS).

The programme for AY2020-21 has been revised in light of challenges posed by Covid-19. Details and dates below. All workshops will run online via Teams until further notice.
