    • Teaching and course design in higher education

      Teaching and course design in higher education

      This course was designed for people teaching or supporting teaching at higher education level, such as teachers, tutors, lecturers, supervisors and student support staff (such as librarians, educational technology and e-learning managers or academic supervisors). The course was originally accredited by the Institute of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILTHE, currently part of the Higher Education Academy) as a route towards membership. The work of a teacher clearly involves much more than classroom performance and the traditional activities that have always aimed to engage students in learning. Teaching embraces planning and running sessions, designing learning environments, supervising and mentoring students in practice situations, marking and giving feedback on student work, undertaking the associated administration, coping with a multifaceted workload and managing complex relationships with colleagues. Successful teachers will also be reflecting across the range of their experiences and planning for continuing development.
