Basic Level Courses
These courses provide the essential tools for good teaching. You will understand the mechanisms of teaching and learning, discover the factors that make university teaching successful, and learn to apply these to your specific teaching contexts. You will develop your presentation skills and learn how to guide your students’ learning through thoughtfully constructed evaluations. You will get to know a range of possible roles you might adopt as a teacher in addition to techniques to motivate and support your students’ learning outside the classroom.
The basic level certificate is granted upon completion of the foundation course.
