The ‘Learning About Learning’ Pathway

The Learning about Learning pathway provides a detailed pedagogical study of learning and teaching, as well as practical support to develop teaching skills. It is designed for colleagues who have a limited role in teaching and learning.

Learning about Learning is delivered online, through a blend of live and asynchronous sessions, and collaborative activity. It is centred on reflective professional practice. In addition to 10 hours of focused study time, participants are expected to be undertaking 5 hours of teaching each week. This professional practice will directly inform their learning on the Course.

The Learning about Learning pathway is aligned with the UK Professional Standards Framework for Higher Education. Successful completion of the Learning about Learning pathway leads to Associate Fellowship of AdvanceHE.

The Learning about Learning pathway replaced the previous LEADS programme in September 2020.
