PCAP module two

Creating effective learning in higher education (EFPM902)

In this module, we aim to enable you to find creative and research-informed ways of enhancing your academic and professional practice with respect to supporting student learning. We aim to help you to develop ways of engaging in peer dialogue, so that you can participate in and develop supportive communities of practice amongst colleagues from across the University, including those in the module group, with a focus on sharing and improving teaching practices and enhancing the student experience. Through critical exploration of relevant education theory, recent developments in HE and University policy, and with respect to peer and student feedback, you will also locate and evaluate your practice within current institutional, political and social contexts and identify a specific aspect of your teaching practice to develop further.

“My personal Accelerate scores and also that of the module that I convene have massively improved this year. I am very much aware that this is mostly thanks to the PCAP courses that I took. […] I just wanted to thank you and everyone who taught PCAP module 2 last Summer for having made this happen”. PCAP participant, 2017.
