This course supports the development of professionalism in higher education practice in TAFEs and Private Providers. Participants engage in a range of activities designed to draw upon their own particular involvements in higher education teaching and learning. The course explores the principles of effective teaching and learning in a range of contexts and formats, covering topics including large and small group teaching, assessment, evaluation, effective use of information and communication technology, curriculum design and cultural diversity. It affords participants opportunities to work collaboratively with their TAFE and/or Private Provider colleagues, and to design and undertake a small project into an aspect of higher education delivery within their workplace context. Participants must be engaged in teaching in tertiary education and will normally take the course part-time, over one to two years.
The course combines research-based, theoretical seminars guided by experienced higher education academics with personal experience of working in and with TAFE and Private providers, and strong knowledge of education and training program delivery within these contexts, with practical exercises involving peer review of teaching, and negotiated projects.
