Graduate Certificate in Education (Tertiary Education)

The Graduate Certificate in Education (Tertiary Education) (GCETE) is a postgraduate program (AQF 8) delivered through the Centre for Learning, Innovation and Professional Practice (CLIPP). This program is suited to academic teaching staff, professional staff working directly within a tertiary learning and teaching capacity (for example, librarians, learning designers, learning skills advisers), and those looking to move into higher education teaching. The purpose of this program is to provide participants with contemporary learning and teaching practices to complement the industry and/or research expertise they bring to the higher education setting.

The program content provides a foundation on which to develop quality pedagogies, in a range of tertiary teaching environments, supported by evidence, research and scholarly practice. Learning activities and assessments support the creation of contemporary and relevant learning and teaching practices for use in current and future courses. Examples include: course design, assessment, online and blended learning, student engagement, learning partnerships, academic pathways, and the scholarship of learning and teaching. Participants will be encouraged and supported to relate their learning directly to their workplace and areas of speciality.
