Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP)

This course has been designed to support you in developing your higher education teaching practice. It provides an opportunity to reflect critically upon your role in the company of others facing similar challenges, drawing on theory as well as feedback from others – including your students.

You will explore the latest teaching practices in higher education and how these are applicable in your own context. It will actively support you to develop your own philosophical position and establish your own style that is honed by the demands of the subject, the learning needs of your students and the constraints of the learning environment.

Each module comprises a two-day teaching block and five workshops along with a fully online e-tutoring component. Assessment is 100 per cent by coursework.
