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 website:

IAD Case Studies Website

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 Communities
  • Academic Support
  • Assessment & Feedback
  • Curriculum Development
  • Digital Education
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Experential Learning
  • Learning Environments
  • Scholarship of Learning
  • Staff Development
  • Student Career Development
  • Student Led Learning

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