University Certificate of Special Study: Supporting Learning in Higher Education (SLHE) Run by the Centre for Education and Teaching Innovation (CETI)
Supporting Learning in Higher Education introduces you to the core concepts, principles and skills that we need to successfully teach and promote learning at university-level. Whether you are brand new to teaching in universities or already have some learning and teaching experience, this module provides you with the chance to develop your understanding of how students learn, how to make effective use of the different learning environments we encounter at university and how to help every student entering Higher Education achieve their full potential. Through a combination of interactive workshops, webinars, online activities and observations of teaching, Supporting Learning in Higher Education provides you with the essential skills, practices and insight into how students learn that you need to start teaching at university level. From teaching in different contexts and using learning technologies, through to effective feedback and inclusive practice, we’ll explore all aspects of HE teaching so you can face the classroom with confidence.
The module is worth 20 credits. To gain the 20 credits, you will need to have the required minimum of 12 hours of teaching during the semester in which you take the module. However, depending on capacity and resources, it may be possible for doctoral researchers without teaching hours to attend the certificate (in such cases, a certificate of attendance can be achieved but not the 20 credits or any accreditation – however these can be obtained at a later date if teaching hours are undertaken). The Certificate will be run 3 times a year (Semester 1, Semester 2, and over the summer period).
