Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (TSLHE)

TSLHE has been developed particularly for staff who have specific teaching responsibilities, such as researchers or staff who support student learning and teaching development.

Delivered in conjunction with the PGCAP programme, the module involves the integration of learning in multi-disciplinary and interactive workshops with reflection upon the experience of work-based practice. Academic supervisory support is provided to all participants throughout.

TSLHE is intended to be completed part-time over one year. In addition to the award of Masters-level credit, TSLHE is accredited by Advance HE. This means individuals who successfully complete the programme will secure professional recognition as an Associate Fellow of the HEA.
