e-Learning Unit (Post Graduate Certificate in Academic and Professional Practice Programme)


This e-Learning Unit in the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic and Professional Practice Programme (PGCAPP) is designed for new staff with teaching or tutoring responsibilities at a Higher Education institution. This work-based learning course is an introduction to teaching in Higher Education.

The aim of this e-Learning Unit is for participants to develop a comprehensive understanding of the potential and use of e-learning tools and environments for the enhancement of learning and teaching. This will be achieved through designing and developing a suitable e-Learning activity.

Learning Outcomes:

• Design, develop and evaluate an on-line or blended learning activity. This will include the role of active learning, feedback and where appropriate peer-review and moderation. This will be underpinned by an understanding of established and emerging theory and practices.
• Critically analyse the scholarship of e-learning which contextualises the e-learning activity selected.
• Critically analyse a set of e-learning tools and the appropriate context of their use.

The OER constitutes session learning plans, presentations, unit handbook and associated resources.
