How to Improve Your Teaching Skills for Higher Education

Higher education requires good mentors to prepare students for the workplace. But things are always changing and so are our students. So how can teachers improve their teaching skills to keep up?

University and college lecturers looking to improve their professional practice will find our Professional Development in Education master’s course to be hugely advantageous. Learn how to improve your teaching skills in a range of areas and enjoy more satisfaction from your work.

Understand best practice in education

If you want to enhance your teaching and management skills, it’s important to get to know the principles and theories that underpin current best practice. We help you apply these theories to real life situations, so you can reflect on your own professional practice and find ways to improve.

Be aware of the problems

In addition to understanding practice, it’s essential to be aware of political, social and economic issues. We help you develop critical awareness of current challenges in the education sector, and provide course programmes that align with your personal development needs.

Get creative with problem-solving

There are many issues and challenges in higher education, and schools are often bound by regulations. Our master’s course allows you to think freely and formulate creative solutions to deal with complex educational problems.

Embrace technology

At Bolton University, you will have access to a range of learning technologies and multimedia resources to make your course experience as easy and convenient as possible. Things such as virtual learning environments and eLearning tools are in place to enhance your studies.

On our course, you will also get one-to-one time with top mentors. The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide (2021 and 2020) has placed Bolton University in the top 5 universities for teaching quality for two consecutive years.

Our goal is to help you gain essential skills for teaching or educational management, with a range of career development opportunities, not just within higher education, but across all levels.
