Foundations of University Learning and Teaching

University of New South Wales via FutureLearn Program

Overview

The Foundations of University Learning and Teaching program is comprised of three professional development courses designed for practising teachers and other educational professionals concerned with enhancing learning and teaching in higher education.

You’ll explore effective teaching, educational design, assessment and evaluation to improve learning and teaching.

The aim of the program is to develop and strengthen your knowledge and skills to improve your practice and ability to deliver effective learning experiences.

Accessible for free on your desktop, or tablet and delivered in bite-sized chunks, the courses provide a flexible way to fit learning into a busy life. And as you progress, you’ll be encouraged to try things out; actively reflect on what you discover, and share your experience in discussions.

When you complete all three courses, upgrade and qualify for a Certificate of Achievement for each, and submit and pass an ePortfolio assessment, you will earn a FutureLearn Award as evidence of your continuing professional development (CPD).
