Abstract

The University of Newcastle is the largest regional University in Australia with a student population of 25,000 and academic staff of 650. In 2004 the University responded to the lack of response to an existing Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching by introducing a new Program, the Graduate Certificate in the Practice of Tertiary Teaching. The change in program name to include “Practice of” is descriptive of a new approach and this is reflected in the curriculum design of the program, courses and integrated assessment structure.

The Graduate Certificate in the Practice of Tertiary Teaching offered by the University of Newcastle, Australia is an example of a professional education program using a ‘practitioner-centred’ model with ipsative assessment within an integrated assessment structure.

By means of a case study methodology, the authors will document the program and describe the assessment protocol through documenting practice, mapping assessment to educational principles. Furthermore, the authors will demonstrate the role of this paper within the context of modelling educational practice and discuss the broader advantages of assessment protocol to the higher education community.
