Teaching and Learning

We provide support and guidance to staff and students in matters of quality assurance and enhancement, to enable them to deliver world leading programmes.

We work closely with the Vice Dean for Teaching, Learning and Students (particularly in relation to the Academy for Education and Professional Development), the Associate Dean for postgraduate taught programmes, the four Deputy Associate Deans, colleagues within the Directorate for the Student Experience and colleagues within the Faculty’s constituent Schools.

Our objectives are:

  • To facilitate the communication and implementation of the teaching and learning policies and procedures.
  • To maintain quality standards across the Faculty by continual monitoring and enhancement. 
  • To develop, recognise and share good practice and innovations in teaching and learning.
  • To act as a conduit and voice across the Faculty using the most effective communication channels in order to champion teaching and learning activities and achievements.
