Course Overview

This course is unique in its ‘practice-first’ approach, and in the depth of learning about the higher education context. Participants will collaborate and innovate with a group of likeminded peers through the online learning environment, and through innovative folio and project-based assessment tasks. N.B. This is not an accredited Australian Initial Teacher Education course and therefore does not qualify the student to teach in Australia.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Articulate the difference between learning and teaching with reference to the contemporary literature and practice
  • Model the behaviours of learning and teaching that can help to define and explore an instructional challenge
  • Innovations that can resolve the instructional challenge and then share the results, via action-based research
