Better teaching: with space to reflect

Mae'r cynnwys hwn ar gael yn Saesneg yn unig.

UNAM is launching its Advanced Diploma in Higher Education (ADHE) in 2016 to help staff learn more about how to teach.

Better teaching, better education: better healthcare workers in Mupini village.

University lecturers on the ADHE will have an education mentor, a sounding-board. The Phoenix Project will help UNAM pilot the new course offering discipline-matched Cardiff-based mentors for the ADHE mentors! We will also help mentors practise Peer Observation something new to UNAM.


Dr Kell spent a week with the UNAM Educational Development Team Dr Shalyefu and Professor Kasanda, sharing ideas and meeting colleagues teaching the ADHE.

Back in Cardiff 18 mentors have volunteered and are preparing for their distance-mentoring role.

Intended impact

Phoenix wants to help UNAM achieve its vision: education that is person-centred, inclusive, respectful of difference and empowering of individuals.

The Educational Development project has the potential for international scholarship projects between our mentors.

Mentors in both institutions could receive a kite-mark or certificate of recognition of contribution. CU-based mentors could use their experiences towards Senior Fellow HEA applications.
