Learning & Teaching Practice

The Learning and Teaching Practice (LTP) course is a practical, work-based short course, which aims to be both a valuable contribution to a participant's own practice and an enjoyable learning experience. It runs twice a year so participants can enrol and start a course in either semester and work towards completion of a practical, critically reflective and discursive portfolio which is underpinned by scholarship in the area of learning and teaching in higher education.

 It has been specifically designed for part-time and hourly-paid academic staff (HPLs) and for any PSD (Professional Service Department) staff who facilitate student learning in their role. Those who successfully complete the course will be eligible for Associate Practitioner status of the Higher Education Academy. Additionally, completion of the LTP course provides credit for the first of the three modules for the PGCert Course should you choose to study further in the future.

 Potential participants are likely to include:

- hourly-paid lecturers (HPLs / VLs);
- Academic Liaison Librarians;
- careers officers;
- peer support officers;
- academic staff on 0.4 FTE contracts or below;
- employability officers.

This is not an exhaustive list, so if you are interested in joining, please do contact the LTP Course leader Anne Morris at
