The Educational Development Unit (EDU) is a core part of XJTLU’s Academy of Future Education. As a department driven by the notion that learning and learners matter, EDU is also the University’s primary networking platform.
EDU mainly supports research-based teaching for teachers throughout their careers with programmes and activities such as Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (PGCert), communities of practice, and continuing professional development.
EDU uses the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). Our PGCert programme is also accredited to award graduates with the Higher Education Academy Fellowship.
Confucius said: “Gaining knowledge silently, learning without tiring, and teaching without being wearied – which one of these things belongs to me?” (Original Chinese: 子曰：默而识之，学而不厌，诲人不倦，何有于我哉?)
