Graduate Studies in Chemistry

Department of Chemistry University of Oxford

The Department runs training for those interested in doing teaching (either as a College Tutor, a Departmental class tutor, or as a Lab Demonstrator). It is University Policy that all DPhil students who teach in a Department or College must attend a PLTO course.

The PLTO courses are offered at the beginning of each academic year and may be repeated later, depending on demand. For the 2018-19 academic year the timetable is:

  • PLTO for Tutors (repeated three times)
    Friday 12th October, 11.15am - 12.45pm, JSR Seminar Room, PTCL
    Monday 22nd October, 11.15am - 12.45pm, JSR Seminar Room, PTCL
    Wednesday 31st October, 2.00pm - 3.30pm, JSR Seminar Room, PTCL
  • PLTO for Lab Demonstrators
    Friday 5th October, 10.00am - 12.30pm, Seminar Room, CTL

Courses involve facilitated discussions, led by Martin Galpin.

Due to space restrictions, it is necessary to book a place on one of these sessions. For the 'Tutors' course, please contact Aga Borkowska. For the 'Demonstrators' course, please contact Laura Fenwick. Priority will be given to those engaged in teaching or demonstrating imminently.
