T 101 LEARNING AND TEACHING IN HIGHER EDUCATION
The Learning and Teaching in Higher Education programme brings together key issues of theory and practice to develop an overall professional 'language' of teaching situated within the communities of academic practice. This 'language' provides participants with a conceptual 'vocabulary' and 'grammar' for understanding and improving practice, enables them to critically reflect upon their teaching in a wide range of key 'genres' of practice and proposes a strategy for conducting and producing evidence for continuous professional development in learning and teaching. It provides a structure for developing teaching and learning strategies appropriate to the distinctive subjects and conditions of the individual university, polytechnic or community college as well the respective academic community. This programme helps participants lead and reflect on the direction, shape and provision of higher education learning and teaching (HELT).
At the end of the programme, participants will be able to:
· Train and lead academic staff of HEIs in the areas related to the direction, shape and provision of HELT;
· Conduct research and projects in the areas related to direction, shape and provision of HELT;
· Apply related professional research-based knowledge and skills in HELT in training, research and projects; and
· Engage and network with higher education leaders nationwide.
