Bruce, Graduate

"The certificate and diploma courses introduced me to the concepts and psychology of learning styles, educational motivation, reflection, small group teaching, evaluation and appraisal. The courses were excellent, practical and enjoyable, and fitted easily into my full time medical occupation. My subsequent individual award for “Learning and Teaching Excellence” from the University I attribute substantially to the knowledge gained during the courses which I was able to put into practice with my students almost immediately"
