Teaching & Learning Programme
At the University of Reading we understand the diverse needs of all students when it comes to teaching and learning practices.
As a result, we are constantly looking for new and innovative approaches that enhance the learning experience. We run a schedule of events that provide staff members with the opportunity to discover, learn and collaborate on new teaching and learning practices across the university.

The aim is to invite inspiring external keynote speakers and include workshops and showcases led by our own academic colleagues and students, ensuring that attendees have practical ideas to take away.
Technology Enhanced Learning
We consider and review the implications and opportunities of introducing and expanding the use of varied technologies in our teaching and learning activities.
These sessions, many of which are delivered by our Teaching and Learning Deans, focus on understanding our University policies and the procedures that underpin them.
Design and planning
In these sessions we focus on module and programme design, including how to embed the strands of the Curriculum Framework across programmes.
In these interactive sessions we explore the benefits and challenges of different approaches to teaching through discussion of shared experiences and ideas.
Assessing and giving feedback
These practical sessions focus on ways of designing assessments and giving feedback to learners.
Through understanding the diverse needs of all students, we reflect on ways to enhance the inclusivity of our teaching and support our students effectively.
Engaging in CPD
Opportunities for all staff to enhance their professional skills.
