Canterbury Christ Church University
Education (Academic Practice)
Successful completion of an honours degree (2:2 or above) or evidence of other relevant study at level 6.
Successful completion of the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice / Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching, or equivalent award from another university.
The pathway has three stages.
Stage 1: you will import 60 credits from your Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (or equivalent qualification).
Stage 2: three compulsory 20-credit modules, which you will normally study in your first year of registration. You will study areas that are essential to successful academic practice, from the student perspective and in terms of your own career. This will normally include aspects of curriculum design, leadership and change management, in the context of the changing nature of higher education in the UK.
Stage 3: you will attend research methods training and write your 60-credit dissertation, which will explore an area of your higher education professional practice using an appropriate educational research method. You will normally complete Stage 3 in your second year of registration.
In Stage 2, assessment is normally through a 4,000-word assignment per 20-credit module. The assignments are varied and flexible in nature and are designed to maximise the potential to examine, explore and enhance the participant's existing professional practice, particularly in seeking to integrate the different aspects of academic practice.
In Stage 3, your 60-credit dissertation will explore an area of your higher education professional practice using an appropriate educational research method. The dissertation will be supervised by a suitably qualified member of academic staff at the University.
