Teaching and Learning in Higher Education is a professional development programme. It focuses on promoting pedagogical expertise in higher education. With the term pedagogical expertise, we do not refer just to individual, but also to collegial pedagogical competency that is promoted, sustained and fostered within the university community. Pedagogical competency results in excellent curriculum, learning environments and processes, and high quality learning outcomes.
