We need YOU to help us shape the next five years of learning and teaching at the University

Firth CourtWe are working on our Learning and Teaching Strategy 2016-2021, which will guide the kind of learning you and future students will experience over the next five years. To make sure we are responding to the needs of all our students, we need you to tell us about the kind of teaching you’ve experienced so far and let us know what you would like to see more of in the future.

To gather your opinions we are holding a series of workshops. These are an extremely important part of the Strategy’s development and will involve various discussions as well as an online survey. The events will be taking place throughout December, with an additional Students’ Union Council Workshop planned for 3rd December.

This is your chance to be a part of the conversation and have a real impact on the University’s future. Don’t miss out. Join the conversation here.

We have three discussions planned for you to get involved in. Hosted by Wyn Morgan, our Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching, alongside a number of the University’s Directors of Learning and Teaching, each session will focus on a different theme:

  • Outward-facing curricula (Preparing you for the world beyond the university by forging connections with communities and business)
  • Flexibility (Making use of technology to enhance your learning experience, exploring the spaces in which you learn, and looking at the various ways teaching can be delivered)
  • Learning & Teaching Excellence (Developing high quality teaching in an inclusive learning environment to make sure you get the best student experience possible)

You will receive a £10 voucher for your time and contribution at the end of the consultation event you attend. Only those who are allocated a place at an event will receive this incentive.

Alongside the priorities outlined by the University’s Strategic Plan, the objectives you help to set will shape the direction of learning and teaching across the University for the next five years.

We need the input of students from across the university. No matter what stage of your university career you’re at or what background you come from, we welcome and encourage you to share your thoughts and experiences.

This is your opportunity to hear directly from those involved in developing and delivering innovative teaching, and to have your say in the initiatives we implement from 2016 onwards.
