As universities rush to offer courses catering to the varying needs of professions and industries across the world, the field of education has simultaneously experienced a drastic transition in the various learning and teaching practices. Keeping track of the positive and rising evolution in knowledge and the shifting trends, education institutions are catering to the teaching community by providing the much desired PGCEi programme. A PGCEi is a Postgraduate Certificate in Education International targeting educators in various institutions involved in teaching and learning. The PGCEi offers extensive knowledge aimed at progressing the teaching practices and equip teachers with progressive knowledge to improve their knowledge.
Modules covered in PGCEi
The University of Nottingham in partnership with Stafford Global offers an impressive PGCEi programme which is offered part time via blended learning. The modules covered in this programme allow students to evaluate their own educational status from an international perspective. As students progress with the modules, they build a deeper understanding and appreciation of the various teaching and learning practices from an international perspective, hence incorporating the same in their own respective institutions.
The PGCEi also aims to help students examine the theoretical knowledge pertaining to learning and understand how this knowledge can be applied to various situations. The programme also furnishes students with specialist skills to develop profound understanding of teaching strategies and help evaluate one's teaching approach.
As part of theory based learning, the PGCEi also encourages students to develop their proficiency in research whilst exploring theories and practices advocated by various philosophers by offering exposure to rigorous, engaging literature. Undertaking research work enhances the student's critical thinking skills and allows them to re learn principles that are contemporary and relevant to the modern day teaching principles.
