Postgraduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching
The courses in this professional qualification look beyond the focus of a specific department or knowledge area and consider academic practices from various disciplines. Throughout this programme, a process of shared inquiry and collaborative learning is used to explore participants’ teaching practices and their students’ understanding of learning.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching is designed to enable graduates to apply knowledge of research to teaching and learning, develop and justify a repertoire of teaching approaches and assessment practices, and evaluate and advance their teaching practices.
Candidates must be practising in tertiary teaching and have either a bachelor’s degree or have alternative qualifications and experience in the field in which they are teaching.
All candidates must be approved by the Dean of Education.
Part-time over not less than two years and no more than four years.
