Learning & Teaching Academy

Welcome to the Learning & Teaching Academy

The Learning & Teaching Academy is an Academic Staff Development service that supports and enables the enhancement of learning and teaching through the use of innovative pedagogy, appropriate technology and use of learning spaces.

The Learning & Teaching Academy is developing its structure for 2021, based on how learning is changing and through staff feedback on what you would like to see offered and supported.

This Learning and Teaching Delivery document is offered to provide guidance and expectations for the delivery of learning and teaching for 20/21. It has been developed in consultation with a number of colleagues from across the college and has been helpfully informed by the survey of student experience of online learning conducted in June 2020.  This is a ‘live’ document and will continue to be updated over the coming months in line with college and sectoral developments.

Follow us on Twitter @LTA_City for updates as well as tips for enhancing learning and teaching and trends in education.

We look forward to you joining us on this exciting journey!
