The Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is a key contributor to Southern Cross University’s purpose: Changing lives through revolutionary learning and research with real impact. The mission of the CTL is to contribute to transformative and institutional change by partnering with all staff to advance teaching and learning within the Southern Cross Model and aligning this change with SCU’s strategic priorities.

The Centre works collaboratively and in partnership with critical areas of the University to provide guidance to achieve the University’s education and student experience priorities. Specifically, CTL embeds the principles of the Southern Cross Model to promote effective and engaging curriculum, teaching, and learning with supporting educational technologies, digital learning environments, and future pedagogies that optimise student learning outcomes. 

The Centre strives for excellence in all we do to improve student learning by being bold, innovative, and ambitious. We promote a dynamic culture of scholarly, evidence-based, and reflective practice to support and advance teaching and learning for staff and students at SCU. The Centre provides a range of professional learning opportunities for all staff to build capacity and drive continual improvement with an engaged workforce.

Areas of expertise that align with the CTL include Curriculum Design, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Digital Learning, Digital Platform support and development, Professional Development and Training.
