The programme is delivered online. Our programme design is characterised by highly engaging learning materials and activities that focus on your practices and support your development.
You will be supported online, and enjoy the benefits of being part of a network of tutors developing a community of practice.
All essential resources, activities, videos, discussions and support are provided in the Virtual Learning Environment. This allows you to fit your studies around your working commitments.
Throughout the programme, you will be encouraged to explore new areas of learning, reflect on your own learning and teaching, and engage in an analysis and review of the learning experience itself, the technologies and approaches used.
The experience is enriched by working with colleagues who teach in a range of disciplines.
When you register, we will give you access to the Student Portal. You can then access your University of London email account and other key resources:
- The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) offers online learning support, access to peer review software, reflective activities, informal discussion areas, and links to resources.
- The Online Library contains thousands of journal articles. A dedicated helpdesk is available if you have any difficulties in finding what you need.
- Online tutors and Student Relationship Managers provide advice to help you manage and get the most from your studies.
The modules run from April to September and from October to March.
We expect participants to undertake one module per session, starting with 'Supporting learning, teaching and assessment'.
The weekly activities have been designed to be studied over 22 weeks, for approximately 10-12 hours per week per module.
Your studies will be directly linked to your teaching practice, making it easier to engage.
The assessment strategy supports you in developing theoretically informed reflection on your own teaching practice.
Assessment is through coursework, and there are no examinations.
In the second module, 'Enhancing learning, teaching and assessment', you develop a plan for enhancing teaching which will encourage you to continue developing as a professional after the programme has ended.
This module enables you to engage in planning for a development that may be of particular relevance to your current work setting.
