Teacher Training Programme for students with FPU grand During your 1st or begining of your 2nd PhD year  

PhD students holding a Formación de Profesorado Universitario (University Teacher Training or FPU) grant from the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness have to participate in teaching tasks as part of their PhD training. In addition to lecturing, teaching requires other tasks that may be unfamiliar to pure researchers. The Teacher Training Programme (TTP) for PhD Students was created to meet this requirement.

FIDU Initial Training Program   Registration The CLIK offers every year the FIDU program (Initial Training in University Teaching). Its aim is to provide basic training in university teaching to UPF teachers who have just joined so that they have the basic tools to teach, in line with the EDvolució educational framework.
