In 2008 Peter Kandlbinder and Tai Peseta reported on their work to determine the key higher education L&T concepts developed in Graduate Certificates in HE L&T. Peter and Tai identified the five most frequent concepts from information from 46 programs in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom: reflective practice; constructive alignment; deep and surface approaches to learning; the scholarship of teaching; and assessment driven learning.
Our teaching induction program will be a semester long and will likely require about 20 hours of participant engagement. This is very different from an accredited graduate certificate.
Which if any of these concepts do you believe we need to introduce in our teaching induction program?
Are there other concepts that you believe we need to introduce in the program?
