Teaching Staff Training Programme

Institute of Leadership and Education Advanced ​Development

The Institute of Leadership and Education Advanced Development hosts a Teaching Staff Training Course that draws upon the experience accumulated by XJTLU. The course concentrates on intensifying the cognitions teaching staff hold towards how to restructure their own roles and change their teaching ideology. Participants are trained to improve their capabilities to facilitate the learning process with advanced teaching techniques.

The course relies on XJTLU’s internationalised teaching staff and teaching support systems. It employs the University's advanced teaching philosophy and models, along with an internet-based learning environment and excellent teaching resources.
