The Learning and Teaching in Higher Education course at Kingston University is fully delivered online, making it especially appealing for busy in-service teachers who are pressed for time.
Our course is designed for those already employed by institutions that deliver higher or further education. It is aimed at those who teach and:
- have fewer than three years' full-time teaching experience or
- are involved in supporting learning (such as librarians, learning technologists, academic developers, skills advisers, technicians).
This course would also benefit anyone in these roles who wishes to strengthen or refresh their understanding and knowledge of learning and teaching. Our tutors are educationalists and specialise in online learning, in addition to being active researchers in higher education studies.
After you graduate
This course has been designed to be a practical, work-based course in learning, teaching and assessment in higher education. As such, it prepares you for working as a teacher and/or facilitator in higher or further education.
The award of a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education is recognised by most universities in the UK, and increasingly internationally, as necessary qualifications for teaching in higher education institutions. Additionally the course thoroughly prepares you for every success in applying for the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy with the Higher Education Academy, a status recognised by most universities in the UK, and increasingly internationally, as necessary/desirable recognition for teaching in higher education institutions.
