PDU logo The unit was developed under an ALTC grant, by a project team of mathematicians, and is now in its third year. The unit will be coordinated from Macquarie and La Trobe Universities in 2013.

The unit is available free to AustMS members. The modules are available for all to view; by formally enrolling and completing three assessment tasks, participants can receive a certificate of completion. By negotiation with your home institution, you may be able to substitute this discipline-based unit for more generic teaching-and-learning training that they require, or as one unit in a Graduate Certificate of Higher Education, as some participants have already done.

The unit is suitable both for tutors and lecturers. The assessment tasks are best completed when one is teaching a class, as they involve production of teaching and assessment materials and reflection upon them.

The unit will commence in late February for first semester participants. It will also run in second semester. It can also be taken across both semesters.
