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 and resources to support online and blended teaching during the Covid 19 pandemic.
