This course supports the development of professionalism in higher education practice. Participants engage in a range of activities designed to draw upon their own particular involvements in university teaching and learning. The course explores the principles of effective teaching and learning in a range of contexts and formats, covering topics including large and small group teaching, assessment, evaluation, effective use of information and communication technology, curriculum design and cultural diversity. It affords participants opportunities to work collaboratively with university colleagues, and to design and undertake a small project into an aspect of higher education.

Participants must be engaged in teaching in higher education and will normally take the course part-time, over two years although full time enrolment is possible.
