Teaching Development empowers staff to fulfill Waikato University's commitment to excellence in higher education. Through our work with staff we are uniquely placed to build on current tertiary teaching research, identify trends, best practice and gaps in the University's provision of higher education.
We aim to help staff to develop the competencies, skills and pedagogical knowledge that they need to provide high quality teaching. In addition, we aim to foster reflective practice skills so that academic teachers become equipped to improve their own practice. Through this work with staff we aim to enhance organisational capacity and capability in relation to quality teaching and learning.
Postgraduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching programme is designed for higher education academics who wish to develop their own teaching and gain a formal teaching qualification.
Teaching Network is a group of University staff who meets regularly to contribute to discussions around aspects of teaching practice.
