About the Teaching and Learning Hub

The Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences' Strategic Plan 2007-2012 has "excellence in teaching" as one of its priorities. The plan also commits the Faculty to providing staff with the appropriate resources and supports to help them to achieve excellence in teaching. This professional development resource is provided as part of that commitment. If you want to get going straight away take a look at this brief quick start guide Quick Start Guide.

In this resource the term "teaching" refers to all forms of teaching and facilitating learning (giving lectures, laboratory practicals, facilitating tutorials, delivering clinical or workbased teaching) along with teaching related and learning support activities (course design, curriculum design, assessment, evaluation of practice), student supervision and pastoral care.
