The Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Education (GCTE) is offered in a 4-week block mode from 2021.

The course focuses on scholarly and practical evidence-based approaches to tertiary education. The GCTE takes an inquiry-based approach to learning and develops skills and knowledge in the context of the participants’ current teaching practice.

With the transition to block mode study, every unit has been redesigned and given a new title and code to reflect this.

See the table below for equivalent units.  You will complete your course having studied units either from the 2013-2020 column or the 2021 onward column.
