Postgraduate taught programmes face unique challenges, requiring tailored approaches and solutions. A number of innovative approaches have been developed across the university and the Oxford Postgraduate Teaching Network offers an opportunity to share that expertise and to develop new solutions.
The network brings together academic and learning support staff involved in postgraduate taught programmes to share good practice, and provide resources and support for course design, teaching, delivery and assessment methods.
It was piloted in the Medical Sciences Division (MSD) in 2020-21, in a collaboration between the Centre for Teaching and Learning and MSD teaching staff, and in 2021-22 it expanded to include the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division.
