Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies (Higher Education)
The Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies (Higher Education) is a University degree offered through the Faculty of Education and Social Work and taught by the Institute for Teaching and Learning.
The course is primarily designed to introduce university teachers to current principles, practices, debates and research in higher education. Candidates are encouraged to develop scholarly, research-led approaches to teaching while engaging in activities and tasks aimed at cultivating critical reflection about higher education.
The Graduate Certificate consists of four core (compulsory) units of part-time study over two semesters. The curriculum and teaching of the course is informed by a set of core principles.
