The GMCTE is pleased to offer the following short courses to explore advanced topics related to teaching and learning in higher education.
The rationale behind this initiative is:
- learning can be deeper when working in a cohort.
- topics can be studied in more depth than in a single workshop.
- a sustained relationship with the instructor and with peers will allow for practice and application of the skills and knowledge learned, as well as feedback from the instructor. These opportunities should facilitate the application of what is learned, in each participant’s own teaching practice.
- to create inter-disciplinary communities of practice.
