Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

This is a specifically designed work-based learning programme that takes place alongside, and complements, employment supporting HE student learning. The 3 modules provide an opportunity for students to gain knowledge, understanding and capabilities in learning, teaching, assessment and academic practice, and will help them to develop clear professional values, understand teaching as facilitating learning and improve their practice in a reflective and theoretically informed way. The programme will provide support in any educational problems students face, and increase their understanding of the learning process so they can make informed decisions about course design and teaching methods. The course will support students' development as a skilled teacher, researcher and scholar, as well as encouraging their engagement with policy, strategy and quality considerations and enhancing their career management.
