Honour Specialist (English)

The Additional Qualification Course: Honour Specialist English employs a critical, pedagogical lens to explore, in a holistic and integrated manner, theoretical foundations, learning theory, program planning, development and implementation, instructional design and practices, assessment and evaluation, the learning environment, research and ethical considerations related to teaching and learning across the divisions. Through these explorations, candidates strengthen professional efficacy by gaining in-depth knowledge, refining professional judgment and generating new knowledge for practice.
