Overview

This professional qualification is aimed at tertiary teachers and considers academic practices across disciplines that affect tertiary teachers in 21st century University. Throughout this programme, a process of shared inquiry, reflection and collaborative learning is used to explore participants' teaching practices and their students' understanding of learning.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching is designed to enable graduates to reflect on current research on teaching and learning in relation to their own disciplinary context and teaching practice, develop and justify a range of teaching approaches and assessment practices, and evaluate and advance their own teaching practices. The qualification covers fundamentals such as frameworks or models of learning, and constructive alignment of assessment to rethinking learning design of your courses and adopting a scholarly/research approach to evaluating your own practice. Assessment is grounded in your own practice so you can gain maximum benefit from the work you do within this course.

Working within a community of practice is an important component of the course but we are aware of the many pressures facing academics. We are currently exploring more flexible modes of participation in 2018 that would enable colleagues to undertake discrete topics covered in the course as separate components and are developing increased blended learning opportunities that would facilitate less time dependent participation and engagement.
