IAD case studies wiki

Examples of good practice from around the university which may be helpful in providing ideas for your own work.

We are keen to identify and share practice across the University. Schools and support services have developed a range of highly effective and efficient ways of supporting students to make the most of their University experience. We have gathered these examples together on our new IAD Case Studies wiki:

IAD Case Studies Wiki

The case studies have been grouped into eight broad themes. An initial focus has been on examples to illustrate excellent support for students. Some describe activities with students, with examples drawn from both undergraduate and postgraduate contexts; other case studies focus on supporting staff to support students. All specifically consider the potential for adapting the practice described, for use elsewhere.

  • Academic and Personal Support
  • Assessment and Feedback
  • Curriculum Development
  • IAD Secondments
  • Learning Communities
  • Learning Spaces and Resources
  • Online and Distance Learning
  • Supporting Staff

All the case studies have used the same core template, which can be downloaded below:

New examples are constantly being added to the collection. If you would like to suggest or contribute a case study please use the template and email your example to Karsten Moerman
