Course summary

The Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP) will provide you with the opportunity to reflect on your role in higher education in the company of others facing similar challenges. You’ll explore the latest teaching practices in higher education and how these are applicable in your own context.

The PGCAP will not ‘transmit’ a model of teaching that’s considered to be effective, but rather will actively support you to develop your own philosophical position and establish your own style that’s honed by the demands of the subject, the learning needs of your students and the constraints of the learning environment.

The course will also support you in developing your ability to reflect critically on your practice, drawing on theory as well as feedback from others, including your students. The emphasis of the course is on the ongoing development of your practice, and those successfully completing the PGCAP will be recognised as Higher Education Academy Fellows.
