Formal courses in the field of Teaching and Learning

There are various full courses taught at postgraduate diploma and master’s levels. These are formal qualifications awarded by Faculty of Humanities.  For more information, on the courses that are currently available please refer to the course list. Members of the staff development group teach with staff from the Curriculum and Course Development, and the Learning Technologies teams in CILT; from CHED; the School of Education; and the broader Humanities faculty. Supervision for PhD and Master’s thesis students is also provided in line with staff research interests. Staff members have a particular interest in supervising work in the fields of assessment, educational technology, and educational resources. The staff development team’s contribution to the field of scholarship supports the development of teaching staff, at UCT and more widely. Formal courses serve staff from UCT and students from outside the UCT teaching community.
