Course summary


Whether you’ve been teaching in Higher Education (HE) for a number of years or are relatively new to the HE environment, this course does more than build on your knowledge, it offers you space to explore your teaching philosophy, discover insights into why you teach the way you do, and better understand what underpins your chosen approach.

We aim to offer you the chance to learn with a culturally diverse group of peers to exchange ideas of best practice and enrich your own perspective of education in our increasingly interconnected world. Along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to build greater self-awareness and confidence as an educator, helping you to make a deeper and more meaningful impact on your students’ own learning journeys.

Delivered online with dedicated one-to-one support, this course offers you the opportunity to learn flexibly and complete each module during the semester of study at a time and place that suits you, combining informative articles, engaging videos and in-depth discussions with fellow educators.

Course information

Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (PgC LaTHE) is for academic staff with teaching, learning and assessment responsibilities in higher education, and provides the opportunity to develop professional academic skills and knowledge.

Designed and delivered online by staff from Coventry University – the only UK university to be awarded five stars for online learning (QS Stars 2020) – the course seeks to equip you for the evolving challenges and demands of higher education. It provides a space to share and develop diverse practices in a global context, addressing a broad range of perspectives within contemporary education.

You’ll have the chance to explore and equip yourself for some of the issues you’re likely to face in your HE academic practice, including those related to:

  • Learning, teaching and assessment practices
  • Academic identity
  • Quality assurance
  • Curriculum development

The course also encourages critical conversations around digital fluency, wellbeing, and sustainable development goals, with a view to support and enhance the modern teaching and learning experience.

Career prospects

You will already be equipped with a good understanding of teaching, learning and assessment responsibilities within your current position at your institution. This course will allow you to underpin those skills and enhance them further, with the view of helping you progress your career throughout higher education.
