You asked for it – you got it! In 2015, FILT is available Online as well as in Block mode.
The Foundations in Learning and Teaching (FILT) program introduces you to teaching in a tertiary context. The FILT Online program consists of four modules. Each module is open in iLearn over a four week period, and offers an overview of contemporary theories for learning and teaching practice, the voices of experienced teachers and peers, and a rich set of useful resources. Read more about FILT and what it covers.
The online modules are interactive and you will participate in discussions and learning activities, reflecting on your own responses to issues and tasks, and sharing ideas with your fellow participants. An assessment task is set for each module with an assessment marking rubric, and there is a
textbook to support the program. By studying online, you will be also experiencing the learning environment that many of your students experience, whether they are full-time, part-time, distance or on campus students.
The FILT Online program commences Monday, 23 February and continues through Session 1. Register for the FILT Online program here.
Classic FILT, aka Block Mode, is offered on campus over five days at the beginning of each session (lunches provided!). The next program begins 11 February 2015. More information and registration for FILT Block Mode here.
FILT is also now available in Continuous Mode – five modules taught face-to-face over nine sessions with opportunities for reflection online in between. More information and registration here.
What’s in it for me?
