Teaching and learning in science


Teaching and learning are at the heart of our mission


We strive to create an open, inclusive and innovative environment and to engage students as partners in teaching and learning. 

What we do

  • We run a series of good practice seminars and ensure all academic staff are informed of available technologies and how they can be adopted.
  • We run an annual small grant scheme which provides funds for staff to pursue new initiatives in teaching and learning. 
  • We make regular use of the Student Partnership scheme to help drive improvements in teaching and learning.
  • Visit our school websites for more information about teaching and learning across the Faculty.
