This course challenged me to develop a much more informed and reflective teaching practice - a challenge I have enjoyed embracing. The support and knowledge provided by the teaching staff enabled me to work on several new projects, leading to the successful Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency accreditation of 11 new higher education programs. It also inspired me to complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Educational Research, with the intention of further studies to come.
