New PhD course: MNPED9000 – teaching in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)
Registration deadline 1 February.
Knowledge about teaching and learning is an important skill for a career in higher education. Reflections around learning and development are relevant to mentoring and supporting members of a research team, and the ability to facilitate learning opportunities for new students is critical to contribute to the future of education and research in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
In this course, you will develop your ability to facilitate student learning. Participants will discuss and explore principles of teaching and learning in higher education, and use constructive alignment to plan, deliver and evaluate teaching and learning activities.
You will learn to plan learning outcomes and goals, evaluate forms of assessment, and select appropriate student-centered learning activities and methods to support student development in a cohesive way. You will learn to use assessment for learning, use writing and discussions to support deep learning and critical thinking skills for students, and reflect on the role of the learning environment and how to include diverse students in your teaching.
