Welcome to Gaining Foundation Skills for Learning and Teaching.(GFS)

NB: This course is no longer available as a facilitated course but please dip into any of the pages and use the resources for your own learning.

Kia ora, I'm Heather Day the course facilitator and I hope this course provides you with an introduction and overview of useful skills and knowledge for those new to tertiary teaching. It can also be used as a great refresher of sometimes forgotten basics for those who have been teaching adults for a while.

The schedule found under the course modules tab is for formal learners in the course. Informal learners are welcome to either follow the schedule in your own time or dip into the resources and play with the information shared in the hope that it adds to your own learning.

The formal Gaining Foundation Skills for Learning and Teaching course is designed as a self paced independent learning package (of up to 10 weeks duration) with facilitated support. I will be in regular contact throughout the duration of the course and shared learning with others is encouraged through a discussion site for this course on Moodle.

Attached is the 2012 course outline for formal participants.
