There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Participants in this subject develop their understanding of key ideas from research on student learning and teaching in higher education to enable them to reflect on and review their teaching from the perspective of this research. They develop their understanding of a model that relates teaching to student learning and is underpinned by empirical research on student learning and teaching in higher education, so that they become more aware of students' approaches to their learning, the influences of the learning environment on students' approaches to learning, and relations between learning approaches and the quality of the learning outcome. Participants relate this to their approaches to teaching, the nature of good teaching and teaching strategies which encourage high quality student learning. They seek feedback on their own teaching from students and peers and make use of this feedback and the research to plan changes to their teaching to improve the learning environment for students.
