Module aims

  • This module aims to allow participants to interrogate a range of key theories in learning and teaching in higher education and to reinterpret these using a range of concepts so that they are of relevance within each discipline. This will require each individual to examine her/his own values in relation to learning and teaching, how these are developed and shaped and the impact they have on how an individual approaches learning and teaching.
