Learning and Teaching in Higher Education PgCert: Learning support

Teaching

The course will be taught by a group of educationalists who specialise in online learning and teaching. A range of learning support systems are in place at the University and can be used by course participants, under tutor guidance.

One of the requirements of this course is that each participant has a local mentor (in their own institution) who can helps with embedding what is being learnt into specific cultural and institutional contexts, whilst acting as a role model. Mentors are selected according to a number of criteria set by the teaching team. We consider mentors as key facilitators of the course.
