Applications for Certificate in Academic Practice, Supporting Learning Programme and Survival Skills now being taken.
Applications for the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice and the Supporting Learning Programme, and bookings for the Survival Skills days are now being taken.
The Certificate in Academic Practice (CAP) is an in-service programme designed to support and accredit the academic development of a range of staff who teach and support student learning at Lancaster, including:
- lecturers and teaching fellows who are new to HE teaching, to Lancaster or to UK HE
- lecturers with considerable experience who are wishing to develop aspects of their teaching and curriculum design, part-time teaching staff
- some research associates and postgraduates who have substantial teaching duties and prior professional accreditation
The Supporting Learning Programme is designed to provide a framework for the academic and professional development of those who hold posts which involve some duties and responsibilities for supporting the development and/or delivery of learning opportunities.
The Survival Skills workshops are one-day events designed to help postgraduates, researchers and others involved in modest amounts of demonstrating or seminar teaching to address some of the basic skills and understanding they will need for their work. It assumes that participants have little or no previous teaching experience.
