Home Learning and Teaching Academy ALPINE Route One: Teaching & Learning in Tertiary and Higher Education Module

Route One: Teaching & Learning in Tertiary and Higher Education Module

Sucessful completion of the Teaching and Learning in Higher Education module involves completing the assessments for the module, a reflective narrative and a statement on future aspirations.

Your engagement with the assessed work and other activities you will undertake will provide you with the evidence you require in order to seek recognition as an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA)

ALPINE and the Teaching and Learning in Tertiary and Higher Education Module

Successful engagement with the Teaching and Learning in Higher Education module will enable participants to demonstrate engagement with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) that is appropriate to fulfilling the requirements for becoming an Associate Fellow of the HEA. 

As part of this process, you will engage online in a range of activities that are focused on effective learning, teaching and assessment practices, and including activities that are specifically focused on the UKPSF and your own direct engagement with the UKPSF.

Part of this process involves completing a Reflective Narrative Matrix which is designed for you to demonstrate specifically where your engagement with the Teaching and Learning in Higher Education module aligns with the three dimensions of the UKPSF.

The three dimensions: Areas of Activity, Core Knowledge, and Professional Values
