Postgraduate training for the digital age. This 32-week blended learning programme from The Mind Lab by Unitec allows practicing teachers to study a recognised postgraduate qualification part-time while continuing in full-time employment.
Innovative Blended Learning
The 32-week part-time Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Practice (Digital & Collaborative Learning) is an innovative blended learning programme in two stages, each of 16 weeks.
The first stage comprises weekly four hour face-to-face sessions at The Mind Lab by Unitec (either one of our labs or one of our partner schools) combined with online support materials through a dedicated collaborative multimedia portal. Other study commitments are based on assignments and activities based on teachers’ own classrooms, where new knowledge and practice is applied.
The second stage of the course is primarily online, supported by face-to-face assignment workshops and other informational sessions. For the second 16 weeks of the 32 week part-time qualification, students continue to apply new knowledge and practice in the classroom while studying online.
There are four courses in the programme, each worth 15 credits, as shown below. For more detail, see the Course Outlines page
