Principles of Teaching in Higher Education

Unit code: DE8031L

Description

​Lecture theatres have in recent history been perceived as physical, teacher-centered, orderly, transmissive and passive. Contemporary higher education classrooms can be virtual, learner-centered, non-linear, transformative and active. Teaching is viewed as a continually evolving activity based on engagement, review, reflection and revision in order to best address the needs of 21st century higher education student cohorts. This unit considers the theories and best practice in contemporary higher education teaching and adult learning, both online and face-to-face.
