These materials have been used in the second module of a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education.
In the first module, participants had considered ways in which they could develop and improve their teaching by obtaining feedback from their students and through observing and being observed by peers. The resources here move the focus to a programme, department or institutional level.
Overview of Content
The first resource is an exploratory activity that considers different perspectives on the ‘Quality’ of HE teaching and learning. It has been used, in different ways, as preparation for discussion in a face-to-face workshop. The second contains suggested activities based around a single document. The document is about institutional approaches to peer observation of teaching and, particularly, changes that might be needed in order to take account of an increase in technology-enhanced learning and new interdisciplinary courses.
