Learning About Creative Education
The first unit of the PGCert focuses on how students learn in creative contexts and enables you to explore inclusive and intercultural approaches to creative education. Using relevant academic literature, you will examine the characteristics of creative learning environments and guidance, and consider the role of formative assessment and feedback in effective learning. The unit also provides opportunities to compare the educational value of a range of learning technologies, and to consider ways of engaging and motivating students in your educational work.
Analysing Creative Education
In the second unit of the PGCert, you will explore ways in which educational experiences can enable us to transcend personal and professional constraints. By examining your role in facilitating these opportunities and relating your experiences to relevant academic literature, you will critically reflect on a range of issues and how they fit in to the wider context of higher education. Typical issues include the role of summative assessment and feedback in effective learning, your role in quality assurance, and the critical and creative use of a range of learning technologies. The unit also provides opportunities to consider the pastoral responsibilities of a Higher Education professional, and ways of adopting an inclusive and intercultural approach to teaching and supporting learning. By the end of the unit, you will be able to critically reflect on your professional development needs and identify potential next steps.
