Teaching and Learning Academy

Director: Clare Milsom

Claire MilsomThey say that no-one ever forgets a good teacher, individuals who can hold an audience and capture the imagination of their students.   

At LJMU we ensure that every member of staff can aspire to be the unforgettable figure by constantly evolving our academic practices, learning from our own community and by creating platforms to promote and celebrate a sense of excellence in teaching and learning.  

The Teaching and Learning Academy is not a separate department, it extends across the University and underpins all aspects of academic life.  Every member of staff belongs to the Academy and they all bring their individual expertise and enthusiasm to the Academy in order to encourage, share and adopt the best working practices across the University.  We believe that our students should learn from engaged teaching staff who are immersed in their own subject and passionate about conveying their knowledge.  We encourage staff to use all of their skills and to use the latest in technology to create a truly inspirational student experience.
