What our students say

This programme led me to rethink everything I do as a teacher / educator from the writing of learning outcomes through to module design and assessment strategy. If these have already been written, then I now have the ability to critically analyse them. Apart from this, I now find myself considering what I am doing as a teacher throughout each individual class itself. Without doubt, and most importantly, my students will benefit from my application of the learnings that I have taken from this module. I strongly recommended and endorse this programme.

I highly recommend this programme to anyone already in or aspiring to teach in third level. It is informative, holistic and comprehensive. It has transformed my in-class pedagogy and evaluation as much as it has my personal and professional life.
