The Graduate Certificate in University Teaching is a part-time course designed to enhance staff teaching skills in an Australian higher education institution.
This course explores the principles of effective teaching and learning in a range of contexts and formats. Topics include: large and small group teaching, assessment, evaluation, effective use of information and communication technology, curriculum design and cultural diversity.
This course is primarily taught face-to-face with classes held on the University of Melbourne campus in Parkville. Most subjects include an introductory, intensive session held in the non-teaching period. Online learning is core to some subjects and is used to support participation across the course as a whole.
This course is for staff currently teaching in an Australian higher education institution. Staff of vocational education and training institutions who plan to teach at the higher education level in the future may also benefit from this course.
If your personal circumstances have had a sustained adverse effect on your academic achievement at undergraduate level or you are member of a specified group known to be under-represented in higher education, you may be eligible for Graduate Access Melbourne (GAM).
