This programme provides an opportunity to develop your use of diverse and innovative approaches to teaching and facilitating learning which will lead to increased confidence in your role and enhance your students' experience. The programme enables this through a range of opportunities which include the postgraduate certificate and diploma and the Masters programme. Both the postgraduate certificate and diploma are available as academic practice and academic practice (Technology enabled).

This programme is designed to support your existing role as a lecturer, however the programme will provide you with new ideas and approaches that will support your development and enhance your profile when seeking promotion with the professional recognition of the programme.
A range of approaches are used across the modules and programme including face to face, on line and students directed activity. The assessment approaches too are diverse and use essays, presentations, reports and online activities.
