QUALIFICATION: Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Practice (Digital and Collaborative Learning) 

“Having the opportunity to take up The Mind Lab by Unitec’s Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Practice has helped my teaching practice profoundly. As a teacher, I am always searching for new learning opportunities as a means of modelling lifelong learning, and to explore ways to encourage my students to develop the 21st Century skills they will need to succeed in the future.”
 
“Teachers are incredibly pragmatic and there’s often very little space for philosophical reflection at the daily classroom level. What’s great about this course is that there is a nice blend of philosophical, academic and practical elements. Rather than risking a narrow focus on preparing my students for a particular assignment, I’ve learned how to be more open to what other learning can take place and The Mind Lab by Unitec has helped me with practical advice and techniques on how to achieve this. While studying I would often participate in class discussions and find myself thinking about how I could use it in the classroom the next day – it was very powerful.”
 
“The Mind Lab by Unitec is an incredibly rich environment to be part of, and reflects the kinds of settings we as teachers should be fostering. Every aspect of The Mind Lab is progressive and is pushing a very powerful message that all educators should be open to.”
