Improve your teaching practice by gaining a professional postgraduate qualification and automatic professional recognition as a Fellow of Higher Education (FHEA), that is recognised globally.
This Academic Practice (PGCAP) programme from University of Liverpool Online Programmes was developed through a unique collaboration with Advance HE, the UK’s foremost agency for driving excellence and developing leadership in education, and is designed to advance your ability to support learning within higher education. By engaging with global perspectives on academic practice in higher education, you will cultivate your reflective and reflexive learning practice, in turn enhancing your teaching skills in an international context.
Why study this subject?
This programme will support your understanding of the online learning environment and the Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). The syllabus delves into theories and their practical applications in order to build on your existing skills within education. Each module will start with a ‘setting the scene’ unit to allow time and attention for investigating different interpretations and definitions of the topics you will explore.
This is the first programme of its kind to offer an academic qualification (postgraduate certificate) and professional recognition (FHEA) on successful completion, providing an accelerated and significant career benefit alongside the development of your practice in higher education. The global emphasis of this programme will be particularly helpful if you have an interest in transnational education and want to develop skills to work with international students and faculty.
