(The specific pedagogical methodologies required for each discipline will also be integrated into the programme.) The Certificate will also be of interest to other working professionals who require this specific content knowledge, as well as to any individual with a personal interest. (Courses will be taught using a blend of e-learning and face- to-face instruction.) This certificate is not designed for transfer purposes however courses may transfer as electives at a university or may even be considered in meeting transfer requirements as writing intensive courses.
