Learning and teaching essentials

Page break

These resources provide essential information about learning and teaching at The University of Sheffield.

The six guides each take you through a key aspect of learning and teaching - if you are new to teaching, or new to the University, we recommend working through each of these resources as part of your induction.

They can also provide a useful refresher for existing teaching staff.

You can find additional guidance and resources in the learning and teaching guidance section.
