The Visual Learning Lab is a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). Our core mission involves research and development work on the visual aspects of learning and teaching in higher education. We work with academics and students in a wide range of discipline areas to study, evaluate, adapt and develop approaches which influence the effectiveness of learning, in many cases utilising modern visual technologies. We take a holistic view of the role of visuals within education, and our foci include technology, space and pedagogical techniques and their role within informal and formal learning.
