Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The PG Cert TLAP is a work based programme and your day to day tasks associated with teaching, learning and assessment comprise a fundamental part of your learning and achievement of the Learning
Outcomes. Key to understanding the LTA approach and its alignment with the learning outcomes is appreciating that the three thematic areas can be studied in any order maximising the potential for
flexibility around your needs and priorities. During the preparation of each of the three parts of your Learning Contract, you will identify opportunities for developing short critically reflective pieces of writing
(known as patches) which are based on your day to day work-based activities, drawing from the literature and the LTA activities in the Module and mapped to each of the Learning Outcomes (LO1 – 9). In each of the thematic areas you will be expected to participate in a range of online activities. There are two workshops associated with each of the thematic areas. You have the opportunity to attend each of these either online or face to face. Your choice of mode of attendance will depend on your preference for mode of delivery and your availability. Recordings of online workshops will be made available for your future reference. Face to face participation in the Module is not mandatory, but we will expect you to meet your PDT in person at the start of the programme to agree your Learning Contract. If that is not possible, arrangements will be made for you to meet online in Skype or in the Virtual Classroom. Independent Learning is at the heart of successful engagement in the PG Cert LTAP. Thematic Leaders will identify readings and web resources which you can access from Moodle and you will be expected to read widely to support your learning and develop your practice.

Description of module content:

The module is organised around three thematic areas (i) learning and teaching, (ii) assessment and feedback and (iii) research and scholarship, each of which reflect in the role and responsibilities of academic staff working in a HE context. The thematic areas will be explored in their own right, however, discussions throughout the programme in different fora will connect them together to enrich your knowledge and understanding, impacting through into your practice.

Learning Outcomes for module:

The delivery of this module is intended to be spread over three trimesters. Upon its completion you will have met the learning outcomes identified for each of the thematic areas:-

LO 3: Participate as reviewer/ reviewee in peer review of learning and teaching practice and engage in developmental feedback

Thematic Area (ii) Assessment and Feedback

LO5: Critically appraise current assessment and feedback practices in your identified area and make recommendations for enhancement
LO6: Critically explore systems and processes designed to support students with a specific focus on assessment and feedback and their roles in the facilitation of learning and development

Thematic Area (iii) Research and Scholarship
LO7: Identify a theoretical frame and apply to a proposal for pedagogic research or scholarship activity relevant to role
LO8: Critically apply research skills within a pedagogic context, maximising opportunities for research-teaching linkages
