010060 Teaching for Learning

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



This core subject of the Graduate Certificate is an introduction to learning and teaching in higher education. It builds on participants’ own experiences of learning and teaching and examines key scholarship to exemplify and explore models for learning through practice-based frameworks that guides what students are learning in the curriculum. It consists of three elements: practice-oriented education, exposure to international mobility and engagement, and research-inspired and integrated learning. The integration of innovation and technology to design inspiring, blended and participatory student learning environments guides how to facilitate student learning. Participants analyse and consider how these approaches support a commitment to social justice, excellence in Indigenous education and responsible leadership in higher education which may influence their teaching values. Through critical dialogues about readings and sharing of teaching practices, participants engage in reflexive activities to critique and build confidence in developing their authentic voice as a lecturer and tutor in higher education.
