EEL521 Scholarly Teaching and Learning (8)

This subject provides students with the opportunity to further develop their understanding and practice of higher education teaching and learning. Through a series of self-chosen modules, students will have the opportunity to focus on designing supportive and inclusive learning environments that meet the needs of the diverse CSU student profile, exploring a range of disciplinary, practice-based and online pedagogies, including how to apply them to enhance the quality of their teaching and student learning. Students will be assisted to develop their ability to justify their teaching decisions, evaluate the quality of their teaching practice, informed by CSU policies, scholarship and reflective practice.
