Course content

You'll develop into a reflective practitioner within your HE community, building your academic knowledge, skills and confidence to engage with your roles and responsibilities. The range of activities, assessments and emphasis on practitioner development forms the foundation of your studies. You will need to provide a range of evidence of your developing practice that can be gathered from your workplace, your teaching, student evaluations and other professional contexts.

Designed to be studied at a distance, we provide optional face-to-face/virtual workshops and webinars to enhance your learning further. All learning activities are designed to be authentic and relevant to your professional HR teaching, developing your practice with an emphasis on teaching observation and review.
