Teaching and Learning Enhancement Priorities

In December 2012 University Board for Teaching and Learning approved the University's Teaching and Learning Strategy 2013-18. The Strategy can be found here;

Following a consultation with colleagues in key teaching and learning roles the Board subsequently (in May 2013) approved sixteen Enhancement Priorities for the period 2013-15. These priorities underpin the four strands of the Teaching and Learning Strategy.
