Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (LATHE)

The University of Victoria recognizes the need for graduate students seeking careers in higher education to develop their skills in teaching, both to help them prepare for the job market and to ensure future educators have the background and training need to excel in the classroom as well as in research. Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (LATHE) is a dynamic Certificate Program that focuses on the pedagogical knowledge and practical skills required to teach effectively in higher education. LATHE combines knowledge and practice about teaching and learning across the disciplines to create a future professoriate fluent in the foundational principles of post-secondary instruction. It will challenge participants to reflect on their practical teaching activities in a scholarly way within their disciplinary context.

This program is jointly offered by Educational Psychology and Leadership Studies (EPLS), the Learning and Teaching Centre (LTC), and the Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGS).

LATHE is open to students in any UVic graduate program. Preference in application is given to students registered simultaneously in a PhD program in their home discipline.
