This course is designed to enable participants to begin to link educational practice, evidence and theory in order to design, deliver and evaluate courses and programmes for both undergraduates and taught postgraduates. It encourages participants to experiment with, and take a critical, scholarly stance on, different approaches to learning, teaching and assessment. Course workshops are designed to facilitate participants’ engagement with pedagogical literature, to challenge current approaches to teaching and to encourage planning for their further professional development in the learning and teaching arena.
