The programme is ideally for people who already have teaching responsibilities in further or higher education, and you will need to have some teaching hours on-going in order to complete it successfully.
The focus of the programme is on the development and demonstration of good practice in the design, delivery and evaluation of curricula. The programme also aims to facilitate you in developing your chosen educational interests and specialisms in learning and teaching, and to develop a personal and professional capacity for critical self-reflection. We adopt a student-centred, experiential approach, and some of the course activities include observation of practice, reflective writing, and a formative video analysis of your teaching (known as microteaching).
