ADEPT summer School and distance learning programme

Global vision. Global insights. Global teaching excellence:
QMUL ADEPT Summer School – 20-24th July 2015
Join us at Queen Mary University of London, ranked amongst the world’s top 100 universities and in the top 20 most global institutions, for our ADEPT Summer School, an intensive week of CPD developing teaching of the highest quality with an international perspective.
Based in our central London campus, you’ll enhance your insights and understanding of current trends and major themes in international higher education. You’ll consider the impact of diversity and difference on your individual academic practice. You will explore what it means to be an exceptional and inspirational practitioner with a distinctly global outlook.
Designed for anyone supporting student learning from around the world, the ADEPT Summer School runs from 20-24th July 2015 and is offered as a standalone development opportunity or as a part of accredited teaching courses recognised by the UK Higher Education Academy.

Online CPD opportunities in Teaching and Learning:
Queen Mary University of London also offers a Distance Learning Programme in Teaching and Learning. This suite of flexible academic development courses has been designed to support and develop staff with teaching responsibilities at any career stage. The programme will appeal to both UK and international participants.

Applications are now being taken for standalone modules as well as for two accredited courses – the Certificate in Learning and Teaching (CILT) and Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP). Completion of an accredited course will enable participants to gain recognition as an Associate or Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy.

The Higher Education Academy professional recognition is awarded to those who have met approved standards in teaching and learning, under the UK Professional Standards Framework. It is recognised as a distinguished mark of quality and is increasingly sought by employers across the UK education sector as a condition of recruitment and promotion. The recognition is also increasingly valued by international institutions as a valuable measure of success.

We currently offer 4 modules on our Distance Learning Programme:
Learning and Teaching in HE (ADP7001)
Developing the Curriculum in the Disciplines (ESD7011)

Assessing Students (ESD7015)
Teaching with Learning Technologies (ESD7018)
