Higher Education Learning and Teaching (PgCert)

Glasgow School of Art


Main Campus


The purpose of the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Learning and Teaching (Creative Disciplines) is to enable staff in UK HEIs and related professional fields to develop their knowledge and skills of teaching practice in higher education in the creative disciplines.

This PgCert is specifically built around the concept of the critically reflective practitioner. The programme encourages students to engage with the principles of student-centred learning and major concepts and theories of learning and teaching. It asks students to reflect on their own role and practice in teaching and supporting students in a changing higher education environment, and facilitates the development of an individual programme of Continuous Professional Development.
