Effective Learning and Teaching

This course explores how effective learning happens, what influences it and how it can be facilitated. It draws on the extant literature on the topic and invites systematic reflection on participants' learning and on how they promote others' learning through teaching.

Entry requirements

Normally a minimum of a 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard is required together with at least 2 years of full-time teaching experience and/or a recognised teaching qualification (for example, PGCE).

Course modules

Core modules: guiding effective learning and teaching. Options: assessment for learning; assessment issues and practice; critical perspectives on teaching and learning; curriculum design and development; investigating research.

Assessment methods

This programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, games, discussions and group tasks. Assessment is through writing a critical review of a chosen academic article and through writing an assignment in which small-scale research into a selected area of study is analysed. Peer and self-assessment are systematically included in the module.
