This module is for academics and academic-related professionals who teach or support learning, and/or undertake research or scholarship in a research-intensive university. Drawing on theoretical and empirical research about effective teaching and learning in higher education (HE) contexts, together we will explore, critically and creatively, a range of ways in which we can enable students in our research-led university to learn effectively. Examining the values and practices of a changing higher education sector, we will focus on a range of research-informed themes, including: how students learn; teaching methods; designing effective teaching sessions and modules; assessment and feedback; and the quality of the student experience within HE. You will work with colleagues to identify an area of your own practice which you would like to develop; this will become the focus for your individual assignment. There are no co- or pre-requisites and no prior teaching is assumed.
