Explore how to enhance your teaching practice and students’ learning using evidence-based approaches to active learning.

This program is part of the Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education degree offered by Coventry University

Explore how to enhance your practice for the contemporary Higher Education (HE) environment

This program aims to develop and enhance your learning, teaching, and assessment practice in higher education through opportunities to critically evaluate pedagogic theory and critically engage with educational research and reflective practice.

Along the way you will have the chance to investigate learning environments, digital tools and resources, and strategies required to teach effectively and inclusively in higher education.

You’ll be introduced to the Professional Standards Framework (PSF), a globally recognised framework for benchmarking success within HE teaching and learning support.
