Welcome to the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL)


Working in partnership with academic staff, Faculties and service areas, we support and cultivate innovative, evidence-based approaches to learning and teaching across the University. Our resources and service links have been collated in the sections below to support academics through the Design, Develop, Teach and Assess process. Further academic professional development opportunities and workshop recordings can be accessed through our Professional Learning section.
