Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to:
- Enable the learner to access core concepts studied and apply these to selected practical contexts, including online modes to delivery.
- Actively engage learners with pedagogy and facilitation of training across multiple contexts through critical analysis and evaluation.
The Learning and teaching methods include:
- Online seminars and practical classes
- Teaching observations.
- Study based on module content and associated activities via the virtual learning environment.
- Independent study based on module reading lists and further independent enquiry.
- Foster a holistic and inclusive approach to curriculum design, connecting the social, environmental, and digital dimensions of learning and teaching.
- Through peer-to-peer observations guided discussions, support networks, students demonstrate self-reflection, resilience and resourcefulness.
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.

GSA delivers its provision across three teaching blocks, within the University of Surrey’s existing semester structure.
Employability - the key focus of this module is to equip learners with an extensive theoretical and practical understanding of key teaching and learning techniques. This understanding in addition to engagement with teaching observations, individual research, critical self-reflection and guided discussion with peers and tutors through seminars and classes, will provide learners with a sophisticated toolkit of transferable skills in preparation for employment in a variety of training and teaching contexts.
Digital Capabilities - students will navigate delivery of research through the medium of power point presentations, data collection, and digital resources, that will be presented as a case study. This will inform ongoing research and develop, evaluate, and disseminate new research for prospective conferences.
Sustainability - students will build a fundamental knowledge of sustainability, corporate responsibility, encouraging collaboration with the community by reflecting their role as vocal coach through promoting positive working ethics: kindness, support, understanding, listening and integrity.
Resourcefulness and Resilience - students will engage with coping strategies designed to support them in the workplace. Guiding them through the emotional and physical challenges that voice work can bring to both client and teacher, further developing the students as resourceful and resilient learners.
