The Tasmanian Institute of Learning and Teaching offers a number of ELT and CAM units designed to enhance university learning and teaching.
ELT501 is a probation requirement for all new teaching staff level C and below. See dates for ELT501.
These units were previously undertaken by staff under a Graduate Certificate program (E5T or E5S). They are now offered under the Bachelor of Education with Professional Honours (E4D).
For any enquiries or assistance with the application or enrolment process please email email@example.com or phone (03) 6226 7251.
The objectives of these units are to enhance learning and teaching at UTAS by:
The program is based on the research literature, including surveys of current practice in universities, the views of stakeholders, including academic staff, and current developments in university teaching, both in Australia and overseas.
The CAM units have been developed in response to demand for a program to meet both the needs of health professionals as clinical teachers and the changing educational requirements of medical, nursing, pharmacy and other professionally accredited health courses.
The objectives of the course will be pursued through the provision of a program that allows for the needs and characteristics of different discipline fields and a variety of teaching roles. Those undertaking these units include new staff, sessional staff, experienced staff seeking further professional development, and general staff with a teaching support function.
All units currently have a face-to-face teaching component.
Eligibility requirements for admission to the course are:
International staff, non-teaching staff and previous UTAS Research candidates should contact the Tasmanian Institute of Learning and Teaching directly for advice.
Admission and enrolment is a three-step process:
* You must include information about your academic background and submit a brief supporting statement outlining your teaching role and indicating whether ELT501 is a probation requirement for you.
The HECS fees will be waived for all eligible staff undertaking ELT or CAM units within this degree.
The SSAF fee will be waived for staff undertaking ELT501 as a probation requirement, therefore it is essential that this information is provided at the point of application.
Staff completing four of the 12.5% units, may exit with a Graduate Certificate. ELT501 is a pre-requisite for the other ELT units which may be completed in any order.
