MA/PGDip/PGCert in the Management of Learning & Teaching in Higher Education


Course Description

This programme's innovative international curriculum will allow staff who teach in higher education institutions to improve their teaching by exploring learning and teaching theory and reflecting on their own academic practice- http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/ma-pgdip-cert-management-of-learning-teaching/

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, small-group discussions and one-to-one tutoring, with the emphasis on peer support through collaborative group working.

All modules are taught by a range of academic staff, to provide a range of expertise and interests. Methods include action learning, problem-based learning, and work-based learning.

The Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma are exit qualifications, and so where relevant are awarded to qualifying students who do not go on to work towards the MA. The Postgraduate Certificate in the Management of Learning and Teaching is also accredited by the UK Higher Education Academy to Fellowship level.

Anyone currently teaching in Higher Education can participate in this award.

The programmes are delivered through a combination of lectures, small-group discussions and one-to-one tutoring, with the emphasis on peer support through collaborative group working.

All modules are taught by a range of academic staff, to provide a range of expertise and interests. Methods include action learning, problem-based learning, and work-based learning.
