CETL Workshop: Introduction to Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

Posted Friday, June 16, 2023

The Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is inviting Higher Education (HE) Educators to participate in the Introduction to Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (CETL1001) online course from May 29, to August 20.

The CETL1001 course was developed to equip HE educators who do not possess formal teacher training with foundational practice in teaching and learning. This online course is an introduction to contemporary and best practice methods of teaching and learning both in the face-to-face and online environment. While new or non-trained educators explore strategies for developing and facilitating effective learning experiences, skilled instructors can seize the opportunity to refine and boost their practice. Participants will immerse themselves in this fully online course and interact with the content on their own time, at their own pace. 

This course is available to members of the St. Augustine campus community only.
