Teaching and Learning Academy services
From conferences to training, our Academy works with staff, students and the higher education sector in a number of ways
Our Teaching and Learning Academy’s ultimate aim is to enhance the learning experience of every LJMU student. To achieve this goal, the Academy undertakes a variety of activities, from organising conferences and publishing reports, to offering one-to-one training with lecturers.
Services for staff
Every member of LJMU staff belongs to the Teaching and Learning Academy – lecturers, researchers and members from our professional services teams.
We know our staff are experts in their fields. We wish to build on that passion and extend this into their teaching practice, encouraging staff to share their best practice with other members within the University.
Therefore our Academy offers the following support to LJMU staff:
- Training and development to enhance academic practice
- Support for the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Blackboard and associated learning technologies
- Host regular Research and Practice (RAP) Seminars, as well as the Teaching and Learning Conference and curriculum network events
- Reward academic excellence through the Teaching and Learning Awards
