Course Content

The course consists of two 30-credit modules: Enhancing Learning and Teaching Through Reflective Practice and Developing Assessment for Learning. There are a range of assessment tasks available which will include two compulsory observations of your teaching by a member of our staff. It is an in-service course and the need to have your teaching observed means that you may only apply if you are already working with students in a higher education context. If you already hold a relevant recent teaching qualification it may be possible to progress straight to the second module, Developing Assessment for Learning, using the Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) process.

Assessment for the Enhancing Learning and Teaching Through Reflective Practice module will be based on the completion of a patchwork text and reflective commentary and an observation of your teaching.

The assessment process for the Developing Assessment for Learning module is based on a negotiated format which each student will choose for themselves with a reflective commentary. The form of assessment will vary and could be an essay, group project, patchwork text or any other suitable written format and an observation of your teaching.

In all cases assessment is on a strictly pass fail basis with no fine grading.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

United Kingdom Although our roots stretch back to the mid-19th century, we’re far more concerned with what we can do today to help our distance learning students build a more prosperous future. Since our first bricks and mortar institution opened its doors 156 years ago, we’ve witnessed lots of changes, although our commitment to advancing the knowledge and education of students has never wavered.
