I would have written a shorter letter, but I did not have the time.

With regards from Shanghai, and especially for Ray, PGCert in a tweet:


Focus on the student learning (ALL students!), not first your teaching. Read up on it, try it, think about it, design for it. #PGCert #SEDA

Any better offers?

Best wishes

Hello colleagues,


Last week I was at the SEDA spring conference in Manchester. I attended Pam Parker’s thought-provoking session on conceptualising ‘teaching excellence’, during which I shared the following vignette:


“We’re about to make some structural changes to our PgC LTHE. I was chatting about this to a colleague [a lecturer in broadcast journalism], who said to me, ‘Imagine that instead of being eighteen months long, you needed to deliver your whole programme in one hour. What topics would you teach? What would be on your syllabus?’ I sat and thought about this for about ten minutes, before replying that I would spend half an hour on x and half an hour on y.”


I thought that this was a useful question. Now, I’m not going to reveal my x and y to you, because after the session Steve Outram suggested that I put the same question to the whole community, and then offer a write-up of your responses to Educational Developments.


An excellent idea! Here, then, is a one-question survey which invites you to share the topics you would place on the syllabus of a one-hour PGCAP. I look forward to reading your responses (for which thanks in advance).


All best,
