Teaching and Learning Academy

Enhancing the student learning experience and developing opportunities for staff

They say that no one ever forgets a good teacher - someone who can capture the imagination of their students and inspire them to learn. In the Teaching and Learning Academy (TLA), we want our students to learn from engaged staff who are immersed in their own subject and passionate about teaching. We see our role as helping our colleagues to recognise, expand and use all of their skills to create a truly inspirational student experience. We do this through supporting the development of academic practice, championing learning technology, encouraging an exchange of ideas across the LJMU community, and helping the University to celebrate excellence in teaching and learning.

Our work is based around five main themes:

  1. Strategy, policy and process development.
  2. Professional development, recognition, guidance and support, including a portfolio of accredited Academic Practice programmes for both new and experienced practitioners.
  3. Evaluation and impact assessment.
  4. Technology enhanced learning.
  5. Curriculum enhancement.
