Kingston University has launched a new online short course in "Learning to teach for further and higher education".
The seven-week distance learning course is for anyone with an interest in teaching adults. Designed to provide a taste of the profession, it will give participants the confidence to undertake teaching and lecturing assignments.
The course requires no previous knowledge of teaching and is suitable for new and aspiring lecturers, visiting lecturers, professional people wishing to pass on expertise and anyone with an interest in finding out more about the profession.
Course tutor Dr Colin Clarke says the real strengths of the course are the flexibility it offers by being delivered online, as well as the use of practical case studies. "We will look at examples of successful and effective teaching practice to highlight what works, how it works, and importantly why it works which you can then adapt to your own teaching interests," he added.
Courses start in February and July 2016.
