Higher Education teaching takes place in a context that is rapidly evolving, challenging and complex. Effective teaching in this context requires the development of a personally meaningful, relevant professional knowledge base. It also requires the development of a critical, reflective capacity to evaluate and reformulate teaching practice and underlying assumptions. The professional knowledge and capacities required for effective teaching include conceptions and theories of learning and teaching, examination of different learner contexts, curriculum design and implementation, and evaluative and reflective practice.

This course provides higher education practitioners with the opportunity to explore meaningful learning and teaching issues within their own professional environment, from the perspective of their current and anticipated teaching role(s). Participants will reflect on their values, context and practice, and design and implement an evidence-based learning and teaching activity or artefact. Peer feedback and individual reflection will be used to evaluate this design and implementation process. NOTE: Learners undertaking this course are required to have access to learning and teaching environments in a higher education setting.
