The Introduction to Teaching and Learning (ITL) module aims to critically engage participants with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) and a range of approaches to teaching and learning informed by underpinning pedagogic research. They will critique their own practice in relation to the literature and develop an effective ‘tool kit’ to assist them in their support of learners.
There are two versions of the Introduction to Teaching and Learning (ITL) module: they both have exactly the same taught element.
Route 1: Professional
Development in Academic Practice: PDAP711 ITL
A stand-alone / professional development module offering 20 credits at M level and Associate Fellowship of the HEA.
Route 2: Postgraduate
Certificate in Academic Practice: PGCAP711 ITL
The ITL is the first 20 credit, M level module of the 60 credit PGCAP programme. The ITL offers Associate Fellowship of the HEA. This leads into the full PGCAP programme which, on completion, offers 60 credits at M level, the PGCAP qualification, and Fellowship of the HEA.
Please note: Contracts for new staff state which route the new staff member will undertake. Direct applicants should check eligibility criteria before making their application.
