In the second of our global teaching excellence webinars, showcasing outstanding teaching and learning initiatives from institutions across the world, we welcome Dr Peter Copeman from the University of Canberra, Australia to discuss how his institution has transformed its teaching approaches to adapt to the needs of its students.
Universities worldwide are recognising a need to transform approaches to teaching and learning away from traditional modes like face-to-face lectures and tutorials in standard teaching periods, towards approaches that are flexible, active, student-centred, peer-enriched, work-situated and skills-oriented.
In this session, Dr Copeman discusses the University of Canberra’s transformation of its Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Education course to help meet these challenges, replacing a four-semester-subject structure with a personalised, flexible, self-organised, self-directed model through which participants progress at their own pace within a scaffolded and supported framework, with outcomes aligned to the requirements for HEA Fellowship.
