Subject outline

Building on the foundations developed in EDU4CTL, participants focus on deepening and extending their knowledge of the theory and research of higher education teaching. The aim is to prepare participants to reflect on, critique and challenge their current practice in ways that inform and develop a scholarly approach to teaching. Participants will engage with a range of theoretical perspectives and research related to higher education teaching, and will consider their potential application to their work. Participants are guided through questions related to effectiveness, evidence and ethics in higher education teaching, and will consider the challenges involved in balancing teaching against the other roles required for a successful academic career.
