Welcome to the Centre for Learning and Teaching
Professor Ruth Pickford
Director of the Centre for Learning and Teaching
We share best practice in learning and teaching, provide opportunities for Developing Staff, assist in Developing Curricula and make available resources on learning and teaching for Digital Development.
We work alongside colleagues in Schools to share best practice in learning and teaching, promote research-informed teaching and teaching-informed research, assist in curriculum development and provide high quality learning and teaching resources.
We provide opportunities for professional development through face-to-face and online academic staff development workshops, events and networking and act as a conduit for the sharing of expertise across the University.
We help staff to use learning technologies and other resources appropriately in their teaching, and to develop digital pedagogy, and we work to support staff to develop specific areas of their practice.
Excellent Education and Experience:The Learning Pathway
2017 Focus: Progression.
Please contact CLT directly if you would like support with, development in, or to share effective practice relating to, any aspect of student progression.
On behalf of CLT, thank you to everyone who contributed to, or participated in, this year's DEAP Conference. I hope everyone who carved out the time to attend found something of value in the two days. It is (in case you couldn't tell) my favourite event of the year. It is incredibly uplifting spending time in the company of colleagues who are so committed to their teaching and to their students. Thank you.
More than 40 academic staff shared their practice through volunteering to facilitate workshops and 60 staff across 16 professional service areas dedicated time to deliver the ever-popular Services Fair, and to co-hosting workshop sessions focused on lightening the load.
'A Course Directors' Lunch was hosted by the Vice Chancellor and Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic on 25th May in the Great Hall.
Newly appointed Course Directors used the opportunity to talk to Peter and Phil and to share ideas with each other about the opportunities and challenges of being a Course Director.
Garry Carr, Course Director within the business School had this to say
"this was a wonderful opportunity to meet and network with fellow Course Directors to identify priorities and challenges for the coming year, I left feeling positive and that a real community of practice is starting to take shape"
