What is a Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching?

A Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching focuses on the latest education theories and methods, emphasising blended learning. It promotes a student-centred approach to curriculum design and delivery, enhances communication skills and prepares you to execute educational research programs.
This course is unique in its practice-first approach and comprehensive exploration of the higher education landscape. You'll engage in collaborative, innovative learning with peers through online platforms and dynamic folio and project-based assessments. It's important to note that this is not accredited as an Australian Initial Teacher Education course and therefore does not qualify graduates to teach in Australia.
