INSPIRE your teaching

Complete a two-week intensive micro-credential focused on evidence-based teaching practices in higher education to help you make better-informed decisions.

A basic search for empirical evidence on higher education teaching practices will return over four million articles, but even if you could read them all, how would you determine which were the best to use to inform your practices? A challenge we face in higher education is knowing which information is reliable and which is biased when faced with an abundance of information.

Using reliable information to inform our decisions can spell powerful implications for students. An example of this is knowing the best-available evidence to support video-based learning to help us prepare online lesson content for student learning.

The Centre for Education and Innovation (CEI) is offering staff the opportunity to complete a micro-credential (a five-credit point unit) focusing on evidence-based practices in higher education teaching as prepared by the INSPIRE group.

What works in higher education: evidence-based practices in the ‘classroom’

You might undertake this learning if you’re interested to know the evidence behind specific higher education teaching practices, get answers to questions about teaching that bug you, or build confidence about the decisions you’re making in your ‘classroom’.

What: UNMC581 – What works in higher education: Evidence-based practices in the ‘classroom’

When: Content will be delivered as a two-week intensive starting on Monday 6 February. 

How: Six topics will be covered over two weeks via self-directed learning activities. These activities build toward online workshops with opportunities to explore the topics in more detail and share perspectives with peers.

The self-directed learning components include:

  • a series of high-quality video-based lessons
  • small tests of knowledge
  • opportunities to participate in a discussion forum.

If you wish to express interest in this opportunity, complete the online form via the INSPIRE webpage.

Registrations close Monday 6 February.
