Learning and Teaching in Higher Education - EDCN871

Changes in society and community expectations inevitably bring new challenges to Higher Education. Take for example, the issues associated with globalisation and increasing student diversity, or the question of the need for ethical, socially responsible and creative graduates. Each of these challenges has implications for curriculum design and teaching practices. This unit will explore theory and research about learning and teaching in Higher Education in the context of these contemporary challenges. In particular the unit seeks to equip participants with the knowledge to better facilitate student learning and to evaluate current practice based on sound pedagogical principles and theories.
