Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (LTHE)

This year long programme is designed for those new to teaching, and may be undertaken by academic and teaching related staff. LTHE aims to provide academic staff with a qualification recognised in the Higher Education sector. The programme has national accreditation through the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA), and the Institute for Learning and Teaching (ILT). Successful completion of the course provides eligibility for membership or associate membership of the ILT.

General Teaching Associates (GTA) Course

The course is primarily aimed at postgraduate researchers with teaching interests, but other staff (from any department) who have some teaching responsibilities are also very welcome.

The course usually runs for one semester and consists of five sessions, interspersed with online activities using a computer conferencing system. Occasionally, subject to demand we run an intensive version of the course. See the GTA website for further details, where you can register for the next course online, or ask for future course dates to be emailed to you when they are released. The GTA Course is run by Jon Yorke

Embedding Learning Technologies (ELT) Module

This module is designed to help you design, implement and evaluate approaches to learning and teaching using communication and information technologies. This 30 credit M level validated module is suitable for both new and existing teaching colleagues, and definitely does not require extensive technological expertise! Participants design their own ELT project in an area of interest to them, and are encouraged and supported in their development. Have a look at the educationaldevelopment for further details or contact Jon Yorke.

Integrated Masters Programme

The Integrated Masters Programme by Rolle School of Education is designed primarily for those teaching in schools. However, a growing number of modules available are appropriate to further and higher education. The Postgraduate Diploma comprises four modules and those completing them at a satisfactory level may proceed to a Masters Degree in Education by dissertation.

Educational Development provides a programme of events and workshops on themes relating to learning and teaching and new developments in the field. These are open to all staff: You can view the current programme of Educational Development workshops and events and book online.
