About the course
The Centre for Promoting Academic Excellence in Griffith College has been running a 20 credit level 9 Special Purpose Award in Training and Education for six years. It is accredited as an embedded award leading to a Masters in Training and Education should you wish to continue studying with us in Griffith's Centre for Promoting Academic Excellence.
There are three modules in the Certificate:
Assessment and Programme Design (10 Credits)
Taught by Fiona O'Riordan (the Head of the Centre) and Angela Lincoln, introduces learners to the landscape of post compulsory education. It seeks to enable the learner to discuss philosophies of higher education and training, their context and drivers, and interpret how they influence the design and assessment of programmes. Additionally learners are exposed to principles and practice of constructively aligning assessment with learning outcomes.
Reflective Practice and Development (5 Credits)
Taught by Tricia Harris and Rob McKenna (the Programme Director for the CTE Online) helps learners determine how their own philosophies of education and training impact their pedagogy. They also learn how to become reflective and evaluative practitioners by understanding the reflective and on-going process of their own learning and development as a trainer and/or educator. We also introduce mindfulness for reflective practice and digital reflection.
Pedagogical Practice (5 Credits)
Which will be taught by Alice Childs the chief Learning Technologist in Griffith Online, offers learners opportunities to understand when and how to apply a wide range of teaching and training methods and techniques suitable to the needs of student groups. Learners develop diagnostic and creative skills which allow them apply appropriate and relevant teaching and training supports and techniques.
