Details of the College’s strategy and innovation in learning and teaching.
The College first developed a strategy for Learning and Teaching in 2005. It has been revised in 2010-11 and will be used to inform School planning and targets over the next three years.
The University’s Learning and Teaching Enhancement Strategy is available to download from the policies section of the Academic Services website.
A key theme in the aims and principles underpinning the strategy is the sense of an academic community, comprising staff and students. A Learning and Teaching Strategy impacts upon students, and a companion document to the formal strategy, specifically aimed at a student audience, is also available.
There’s a great deal of effective and innovative practice within the seven Schools of the College in all aspects of teaching and learning. In an effort to share effective practice we have created the Learning and Teaching Knowledge Base (LTKB).
The LTKB contains media-rich mini-case studies of practice from around the College. It also includes contributions from outside the College presented at various learning and teaching workshops / seminars. It is openly accessible to all (not just those within the University) and new content will be added regularly.
In the academic year 2011-12, Innovative Learning Week (ILW) will take place from 20-24 February 2012. Normal teaching slots will be suspended and in their place will be a range of activities for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The College holds events for staff to explore and improve learning and teaching practice. Check here for updates on upcoming events.
