Who we are, what we do and how we work.
To provide University level support for teaching, learning and researcher development; through leadership, innovation, collaboration and direct provision that benefits students, staff and the University’s international reputation.
This remit includes a mixture of direct support for students and staff (e.g. workshops, online resources, networks and advice), much of it delivered in partnership with Schools and other Services, alongside support for curriculum innovation and enhancement.
Three key principles underpin IAD planning and priority setting. These are to focus on supporting University and College strategic priorities, to work closely and collaboratively with Schools and support services (including EUSA), and to consider the full continuum of academic development requirements (making connections where possible between our support for undergraduate and postgraduate students, early career researchers, academic and teaching staff). We also have a clear focus on increasing engagement with IAD support (e.g. increasing participation in IAD events and courses by staff and students) and deepening the impact of this support locally, within Schools and programmes.
With around 35FTE staff, a very broad remit and need to provide support that is responsive to disciplinary as well as individual requirements we have focussed on developing four key elements of support for most IAD audiences and areas:
