Do you want to gain a qualification in teaching and supporting learning in higher or professional education whilst further developing your skills and knowledge, but need the flexibility of online learning? If you have experience and are currently employed in higher or professional education and aspire to gain professional recognition, this programme is designed for you.
Mode of Study:
University of Bolton
At the University of Bolton we have a ‘Teaching Intensive, Research Informed’ ethos. This means we aspire to offer postgraduate student-focused courses that inform best practice in teaching and learning, underpinned by the research knowledge of our high quality staff.
This contemporary and stimulating programme of study gives you the opportunity to critically evaluate current educational developments and research, and improve your own professional practice. We’ll guide you in an exploration of the theories, principles and application of different strategies and approaches that can be employed to create effective and inclusive teaching and learning environments. You’ll be encouraged to draw from and focus on work-based experiences to share and explore the most effective techniques and methodologies.
Our welcoming team of highly experienced, professionally and academically qualified staff will cover topics that include action learning, enquiry and work-based learning, learning and teaching theory, formative and summative assessment, and the use of information technology.
The programme can potentially contribute to Higher Education Academy (HEA) professional recognition.
The programme is underpinned by the UK PSF. It is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and may lead to Associate Fellowship of the HEA for those seeking professional recognition.
