Uni Sydney puts its money where its mortarboard is

The university wants to “transform the learning experience of our students,” so it is encouraging staff to take its Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies (HE)

As in really encouraging, the university will pick up the $24 000 cost of the one-year programme.

The excellent Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching might explain why. Uni Sydney had a 77.7 per cent rating by undergraduates for teaching quality in 2018, the fifth lowest in the country and down on the national average of 81.3 per cent.

The course is also free to “affiliates who teach Sydney students” so one way or another sessional staff appear included.
