This certificate consists of two 30-point compulsory courses to be taken part-time over two semesters.
30 points: Learning and Teaching (HIGHED 701)
Students will document and critically reflect on their teaching practice in the context of their discipline and institution, and the higher education literature on learning and teaching and academic citizenship, taking into account how they will exhibit both leadership through innovation, scholarship and collegiality, and an awareness of difference (gender, ethnicity, ability) such that their practice is culturally and individually sustaining.
30 Points: Course Design (HIGHED 702)
Students will explore and critically reflect on the theory and practice of learning and course design in higher education, including different models and methods of assessment and evaluation, such that they can design, implement and evaluate learning and teaching activities, assessment tasks and courses in ways that speak to practice in their discipline and institution, and the higher education literature.
