Synopsis

This course enables higher education educators to explore learning and teaching in their environments. In doing so, they will focus on their own context and anticipated teaching roles. Through the process of critical self-analysis with reference to the qualities of effective educators, participants will develop a 'teaching capacity enhancement plan' (TCEP). This plan should be developed in collaboration with professional colleagues who are prepared to work alongside participants as members of a focused professional learning community. A key outcome of this course will be the 'teaching capacity enhancement plan'. This plan will allow participants to incorporate relevant professional development and staff development activities, including work-based projects. NOTE: Learners undertaking this course are required to have access to learning and teaching environments in a higher education setting.
