Progress your career in tertiary education and enhance your understanding of teaching and learning.
This course teaches you the most effective ways to approach important tasks in tertiary education – from curriculum design, to assessment, to the leadership of teaching teams. This type of qualification is becoming increasingly valued across the higher education sector – both locally and internationally.
Our Graduate Certificate of Higher Education Learning and Teaching is suitable for all academics teaching undergraduate or postgraduate students, those in research supervision, as well as leaders and managers of higher education.
You’ll also investigate your own teaching practices and contexts, so it’s highly desirable that you’re already engaged in tertiary teaching in some way.
