The ability of the institution to be able to deliver quality teaching in higher education has never been more important than it is now. The need to adapt to new delivery methods and in many cases review the curriculum design has created unprecedented challenges but also an opportunity to reflect in depth on multiple aspects of current policy and practice.  

Our portfolio will both celebrate best practice and recognise opportunities for future development, ultimately aspiring to achieve sustainable teaching excellence. 

We bring a wealth of expertise to our portfolio of services in teaching and learning, our Student Success frameWORKS are informed by research and developed with the sector and by the sector and are embedded into teaching and learning practice across HE, and events conferences and symposia have built a knowledge base of best practice that we curate and share with the global HE community.

Virtual Teaching

In the face of the continuing effects of the global pandemic, many university teaching staff need to adjust to a socially distanced campus, teaching in both hybrid and online spaces.

Effective and engaging teaching in socially distanced campus and an online or blended environment requires an understanding of effective pedagogies for online and hybrid teaching. Even for those who are experienced teachers but inexperienced virtual or online teachers this can feel challenging.
