Certification of NUST lecturers continues

The fourth group of 57 lecturers has enrolled for the Institution’s Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE) programme, aimed at advancing pedagogical skills and offering lecturers learning experiences of the highest level.

The programme, offered by the Faculty of Human Sciences, in collaboration with the Teaching and Learning Unit (TLU) meets the needs of staff new to teaching in higher education as well as experienced lecturers who wish to advance their current teaching skills.

This three-semester programme that includes: Teaching, Learning and Assessment; Curriculum Design and Development; and Technology Integration in Teaching and Learning.

This year the programme is fully online which has led to deeper engagement in learning activities and ownership of the learning process.Selma Kambonde, from the Department of Marketing and Logistics, commented on her experience with the PGCHE saying: “I have gained so much insight the past few weeks and I feel I have grown both personally and professionally. This includes learning about the importance of active learning, reflective learning, and many other student-centred approaches.

”Dr Julia Indongo, from the Department of Technical and Vocational Education and Training, said: “The programme reminded me that my responsibility as a lecturer is not to give students the information but to facilitate learning by creating a learning environment where both the students and lecturer will interact, share their experience and knowledge.”A senior lecturer Yapo Aboua from the Department of Health Sciences said: “Because of this course, I now understand the importance of my role to produce learners that are capable of solving real-world problems.”

The PGCHE is a Level 8 Qualification (Honours), accredited by the Namibia Qualifications Authority.

It is fully funded by NUST as a benefit to staff for their continuous professional development. To date, 100 staff have graduated from this programme.
