Description for 2022/23

This module instils principles and techniques of reflective practice that will help successful graduates to become resourceful and critical developers of teaching and learning in higher education learning contexts. The module will develop a critical rationale for practice that is grounded in theoretically informed understanding, experience gained from reflection on critical incidents, professional values and policy contexts. Structured support to encourage peer collaboration and learning from each other will be provided, through both direct observation and regular discussion of what worked, and why. Central to this module is critical exploration of the practice and theory of a wide range of learning technologies for teaching.
This module also introduces the values, knowledge and activities of the UKPSF.
This module is the first module of Keele's Higher Education Academy accredited MA in Higher Education Practice. Separately, successful completion of this module entitles you to Higher Education Academy Associate Fellowship.
