Tutoring and Demonstrating
The information and resources provided on this page are designed specifically for tutors and demonstrators at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington. Whether your position is as a teaching assistant, tutor, marker, or lab or workshop demonstrator, you play a central role in learning and teaching at our university.
This page is intended to provide support by covering key tools, resources and good practise advice that may be helpful as you approach key tasks – particularly those related to the use of learning and teaching technology.
You can contact us at the Centre for Academic Development (CAD) for further technological and pedagogical advice.
If you require specific information or assistance in your role, your course coordinator or school manager and administrator(s) are likely to the best points of contact. Peers tend to be a good source of information and support as well. Having a community of tutors, demonstrators and/or markers to share ideas and experiences can be extremely valuable.
I am new to tutoring/demonstrating at VUW - where do I start?
If this is your first time tutoring or demonstrating at our university, you will be required to complete tutor training. This initial training will provide you with foundational information for getting started in your role. Talk to your school office to find out more about taking part in tutor training.
Information about using various tools for tutoring tasks
For online teaching support, there is a CAD Drop-in Zoom session that you can join to talk to someone at CAD. Sessions take place every Monday to Friday 1pm to 3pm. Join the Zoom meeting at CADTraining.
If you need technological support, contact Digital Solutions. Digital Solutions offer technological support for both staff and students. You can log a call through the Staff Service Centre or use the ‘instant message’ option for quick queries.
