UNHE500 Learning and Teaching in Higher Education

This unit offers participants opportunities to bring together the understandings developed in other Graduate Certificate in Higher Education units and to further their knowledge of the scholarship of teaching, learning and professional practice. The unit also aims to orient participants towards enquiry-based reflection and improving teaching and learning support in diverse contexts. The core of this unit will be a project that explores an aspect relevant to each participant’s professional practice.

Using current research into teaching and learning in higher education, participants will construct a project that reflects on an aspect of teaching and learning within their discipline or professional practice. During the semester they will engage with fellow students to hone their project’s argument and methods. The project will be underpinned by participant’s understanding of ethically guided research.
