Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

Graduate Level Course on Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

Six modules that center on key concepts in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education have been collaboratively developed by Queen’s University, Western University and University of Waterloo.

Module 1: How Students Learn 
Module 2: Assessment Strategies
Module 3: Active Learning
Module 4: Principles of Course Design
Module 5:  Globalization of Learning 
Module 6: Ethical Principles and Professionalism in University Teaching

The underlying principle of the six modules is that they are applicable across disciplines, and other institutions regardless of the structure and programs already developed for graduate students on Teaching and Learning. 

The new online modules are intended to engage and prepare graduate students for participation and collaboration in shorter and less frequent face to face meetings. Our goal in developing these modules was to leverage the advantages of the on-line environment to better prepare graduate students and to decrease the resources and time required for frequent and lengthy in-class components. These factors together will not only create a more effective and efficient learning environment, it will also afford the opportunity for more frequent or new opportunities for course development focusing on Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

The entire course of six modules as well as each individual module and are available on this website as open educational resources in editable formats so that other institutions can adopt, contextualize and personalize them, or use them in their entirety.
