The course is assessed and those participants who attend on a compulsory basis must pass the assessment in order to obtain the award, together with meeting M.U.S.T. attendance requirements.
The course is open to all staff who wish to participate on a voluntary basis, either to complete the attendance and assessment requirements (and, thereby, to obtain the Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education) or to attend one or more sessions without completing the assessment requirement (thereby obtaining a Certificate of Participation in the course).
The assessment comprises: compiling a focused teaching portfolio (introduced in the course itself) which includes a piece of reflective writing on their learning, development and implications for their present and future teaching practice and pedagogical development. Guidance on this assessment and the criteria for assessment will be provided in the course.
Participants who have not met the attendance requirements will not be eligible for assessment.
