Teaching Human Sciences in Higher Education Portfolio 2023-24
School Of Human And Behavioural Sciences
Module - Semester 1 & 2
This course is part of a series of modules (PPT4001 and PPT4002) with the ultimate aim to develop and enhance teaching skills, understanding of issues teaching in Higher Education, and the mechanisms involved in running and developing Human Sciences courses in Higher Education. Students will be expected to work as a member of a teaching team to complete their Teaching Practice.
These courses are predominately focused on the practice of teaching, rather than pedagogical theory. The aim of the course is to help students become a competent and adaptable teaching practitioner, able to facilitate and support student learning. Moreover, they will gain some insight and experience of the ‘hidden’ mechanisms of teaching in Higher Education (e.g., quality assurance, moderation etc). They will find these skills invaluable for their future academic development and employability.
