Key benefits
This programme provides teachers in higher education with an ideal opportunity to learn to research their teaching and look for the evidence of student learning. Also, gaining a qualification in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education shows a professional approach and commitment to the enhancement of student learning and is often used as a criterion for career progression and promotion.

Past students of the course have said:

“You are to be congratulated for making such a good programme available online. I would not have been able to pursue the programme if it was not online and I suspect a lot of colleagues are in the same position”.

“The full course has made me be much more aware of my teaching and has allowed me to reflect on the understanding and knowledge that I expect my students to know”

“The various learning tools that we have learned about make for much more interesting and thoughtful classes”.
