Kia ora and welcome to the Graduate Diploma in Tertiary Education. This is a level 7, work-based qualification developed to create a tertiary educator who is critically reflective, culturally competent and future focused. You will develop skills to become an effective facilitator of learning, able to create enhanced learner-centred opportunities in a tertiary context.
|At Otago Polytechnic, we place a high priority on the skills and formal qualifications of our teachers to facilitate the learning journey for our students. As an open organisation, we want to share these opportunities for learning freely with the world using open educational resources. Building the Graduate Diploma in Tertiary Education upon a work-based learning philosophy, we are modelling the practice we expect from our educators in their own classrooms and we are committed to helping others achieve these goals.
—Phil Ker, Chief Executive
