Are you ready to step up your academic career and become a more effective and skilful teacher in an increasingly complex higher education landscape? The Graduate Certificate in Higher Education Teaching and Learning (GCHETL) is now open for enrolments to Spring Semester.

The course is very uplifting as I got lost in my teaching in the past 4 years.

Course participant feedback

In this course, you will:

  • Reflect on your values and teaching practices, and transform your classroom with practice-based learning
  • Connect with and learn from your peers, and grow your own professional networks
  • Develop your teaching and learning repertoire, and advance your scholarship

The GCHETL has been tailored to the participants’ unique teaching and learning environments to enhance student learning experiences, advance their academic career and evidence their impact.

Course Structure

  • Start with the two foundational core subjects ‘Teaching for Learning’ and ‘Advancing Academic Practice’
  • Then choose five electives from a wide suite of subjects including from the GC Transdisciplinary Learning, the GC Learning Design and CAIK micros
  • Complete the course with the capstone subject ‘Evidencing Academic Practice’

Check out all the details of the course structure, elective choice block and admission requirements in the Handbook

Maximum flexibility

The GCHETL has been designed with flexibility in mind. You can enrol in a single subject (core or elective) as a non-award subject – if you decide later to continue studying you can enrol with the next intake and apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL). This is a part-time course and delivery modes are blended, with subjects offered in short teaching sessions of six weeks, to complete the course in a minimum of one and a maximum of two years.

There are many great examples that I have already easily adopted into my course.
