Professional Practice in Higher Education
Normally an undergraduate degree awarded by a UK higher education institution, or an equivalent qualification from overseas is required; applicants who have at least 2 years of work experience relevant to the programme are also welcome to apply, and are invited to attend an admissions interview. Applicants who have previously completed postgraduate-level courses or modules that can be recognised as appropriate for this course may be enrolled with advanced standing through our Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL). Similarly, applicants who can evidence a substantial body of work-based experience relevant to the programme, as through a reflective portfolio, can apply for the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).
Modules include: teaching and learning in higher education; course design and assessment; using learning technology in higher education; research degree supervision; research management; mentoring and coaching in higher education; curriculum models and curriculum development in higher education; the teacher practitioner; teaching and supporting academic writing in higher education; quality management in higher education; linking teaching and research; sustainability in higher education; delivering effective outcomes and change through teams; enterprise and higher education; e-learning (teaching and assessment); e-learning (hardware and software); e-learning (with web); designing and conducting a pedagogical research project; the role of information literacy in students' learning and research; teaching and learning within and beyond the disciplines; marketing matters in higher education; employability in higher education; pedagogical research project; Master's project or dissertation.
Assessment for all modules is by coursework, based upon the completion of assignments designed to promote understanding, enhancement and/or application of professional practices in higher education; each module has its own assessment tasks, usually 1 or 2 per module; forms of assessment include work-based activities, action plans, reports, reflective logs, portfolios, presentations, reviews, case studies, business plans, short essays, action-research documents, and (for the Master's degree) a dissertation/research project.
