Your professional development is key to future proofing your teaching practice and actively engaging with your students in new successful models of learning and teaching. The Transforming Teaching for Learning (TTL) unit is fully flexible through UWA’s LMS. The three modules that make up the unit can be taken in immediate succession or in order over a period of time with breaks.
Module 1 (4 weeks): introduces the past, the present and the future of learning.
Module 2 (5 weeks): introduces the Carpe Diem process, which will assist you to design your own active and interactive unit, with learning activities and assessment scaffolded to the learning outcomes.
Module 3 (4 weeks): focuses on the delivery and evaluation of a learning innovation to inspire your students
The Centre for Education Futures recommend committing around 10 hours per week per module. The TTL unit is free for UWA Academic staff and forms the first unit of UWA’s Graduate Certificate of Tertiary Teaching (GCTT). Fees are also waived for GCTT UWA staff with endorsement from your Dean.

You’ve heard from us, now here from some of our participants.
“I think the way the unit has been constructed is a perfect example of how to integrate online learning into our teaching....” – KM Module 1 participant 2016
“This unit showed me first how the board can be a tool not only for sharing ideas, but also for communication, discussion and for fostering critical thinking as well as individual reflections. Moreover, our always present but most of times invisible tutor demonstrated to us all how 1) learning and teaching can be co-constructed together, and how 2) it can be carried on by students themselves, under minimal guidance”. - NF Module 1 participant 2016
“With the ever increasing emphasis on digital learning this was a great opportunity and challenge to extend some of my design skills….. This has been a great experience. Thanks again to the TTL team.” - MS Module 1 participant 2016
“We choose how deep to go into each spark and how much we involve ourselves in the conversation…..We "work" when it's convenient for us. Because the unit is offered multiple times during the year, it can accommodate smaller groups of students. The flexibility it affords is awesome.” – DF Module 1 participant 2016
