Strategies and Approaches: Building Learning Centred Teams

Selecting an appropriate form of team teaching is a task that requires careful consideration of student needs, teaching requirements and available resources. This initial planning may lead to more inclusive strategies associated with Team Teaching such as cross-disciplinary teaching or the involvement of professional staff.

For example, professional staff from service areas within the University may help facilitate student learning by tailoring support services to specific students and unit requirements as identified by the teaching team. Such examples illustrate how Team Teaching supports a learning centred approach by establishing active partnerships that contribute to student learning outcomes and enhanced support.
