Pre-requisites: Honours Degree plus university teaching experience.

Aims/Description: This module considers the teaching and learning practices with which we are familiar. It seeks to help people understand and develop these practices, whilst recognising that they are informed by broader contemporary changes in higher education and society. In order to develop our thinking and practice, we draw upon our experience of learning together as a group, our work with students, and the literature on teaching and learning in higher education. Within this module the following themes are likely to be pursued: - Working and learning in/as a group - Different approaches to teaching and learning - Institutional, social and political contexts of teaching and learning - The purpose of higher education - Contemporary changes in higher education
