  • 4. Mapping to the PG Cert
    • All Postgraduate Certificates in Higher Education (PG Certs) are underpinned by the Professional Skills Framework (PSF) http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/ourwork/universitiesandcolleges/accreditation/ukpsf
    • We chose resources of particular relevance to the PG Cert (19 items)
    • Mapped these to specific modules in our PG Cert and to specific sections of the PSF.
    • 2 worked examples
      • eg Module on Educational Enquiry number of resources could be useful eg Captivate demo on literature searching, keeping-to-date webct course, endnote workbook
    • Aim of mapping to increase transferability and re-use
