Higher Education

This Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education is designed for all those teaching in higher education. Reflecting on your own experience of teaching, including critical incidents, we consider the factors that contribute to effective teaching strategies in the education of adults, including: - understanding how students learn - teaching and learning techniques and resources - ways of establishing and maintaining effective learning environments - developing an integrated approach to assessment. You will develop holistic approaches to planning learning activities and events, including ways to integrate principles of social inclusion and widening participation into learning events. Please note: this is a qualification for higher education-level teaching only and this course is therefore not eligible for Student Loan Company funding.
