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.

The Teaching and Learning Enhancement Priorities 2013-2015 consist of the following;

Evolve our approaches to teaching and learning:

  • Develop our expertise in Technology Enhanced Learning
  • Develop our expertise in distance/blended and flexible learning
  • Expand the use of new modes of teaching
