The purpose of this program is to provide participants with contemporary learning and teaching practices to complement the industry and/or research expertise they bring to the higher education setting. The intended learning outcomes of the GCETT are framed within the seven (7) criteria of the Australian University Teaching Criteria and Standards Framework. The program recognises that participants work across a range of education sectors and engage with students from a variety of age groups and demographics, including low socio-economic. Consequently, course content and structure has sufficient flexibility to enable customisation to different cohorts of participants in order to address their specific teaching contexts. Participants will be encouraged and supported to ensure that their learning relates directly to their workplace and areas of speciality. The design of the program has also been guided by the requirements of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and is particularly suited to participants moving into the higher education teaching.
