    • 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.

    • Learning schools programme

      Learning schools programme

      The programme was built around the concept of networks of Local Advisers consulting and negotiating a training package tailored to the needs of all or part of a school staff. These LEA Adviser teams provide support for schools and teachers and are equipped with a range of text and audio-visual resources to assist them. Teachers on the Programme undertook their own needs assessment and prioritise various professional tasks and activities to help meet them. The programme materials and support structures facilitated the completion of their selected tasks. The materials consisted of booklets, textbooks, a resource-led web site and subject/phase-based CD-ROMs of examples of good classroom practices using ICT. The support structures include contact with LEA Advisors, face-to-face and by e-mail, and access to a series of moderated local and national electronic conferences. The materials comprise both generic and subject specific content covering Primary and 16 Secondary subjects and country versions where required, including teacher packs in Welsh.
