Welcome to Elevate!

We provide support for all staff who teach to develop their practice, knowledge and capability around learning and teaching. This page signposts resources for those who are new to teaching.

Learning and teaching essentials guides

These guides take you through key aspects of learning and teaching. If you are new to teaching, or new to the University, we recommend working through these as part of your induction.
