The Confident Teacher, PGCAP Module 1, provides an overview of learning and teaching within HE for new academics. This module gives you an opportunity to implement a range of teaching and learning techniques into your practice within your discipline-specific contexts. The interactive nature of this module will enable you to develop as confident teachers and to explore methods for bringing about student learning opportunities and thus have an impact in the classroom.
Moving from an overview of learning and teaching within HE, you will develop skills in designing aligned learning and teaching utilising different approaches. You will be introduced to assessment and feedback approaches and theories as part of the aligned approach useful for those new to teaching in HE. Attending sessions will give you an opportunity to engage in discussions about best academic practices widely used and recognised in higher education and to reflect on your professional development in this regard.
