CORE – 004 – Teaching for effective learning in HE

Target Audience

Probationers: Core Session and mandatory (priority will be offered to probationers, if the session proves very popular).
Highly recommended for: those ‘Starting to teach in HE’.

Event Details

This session will focus on learning theories and models appropriate in Higher Education and how these assist in our understanding of how students approach learning. Knowledge of these models enables us to best structure and scaffold learning experiences and our teaching practice in different HE learning environments including face to face, virtual and online.

Learning Outcomes
  • Be aware of the wide range of learning theories appropriate to HE learners
  • Have critically evaluated a learning theory for its appropriateness in their disciplinary and teaching context
  • Be aware of some of the advantages and limitations of the learning theories commonly applied in HE contexts
  • Appreciate how knowledge of key learning theories enables better teaching practice and support of a wide range of approaches to learning
  • Identify the similarities and differences with teaching and learning face to face compared to in online contexts

Joining instructions and any pre course work will be sent out one week before delivery of the session.
