Academic Development in the Centre for Teaching and Learning is the teaching staff focused enactment of our mission to foster and facilitate a learner centred curriculum throughout the University.  Through academic development, we aim to work collaboratively with colleagues to create and develop learning experiences which are meaningful, challenging and engaging and which optimise the student’s capacity for automous, self-directed learning.  A fundamental part of academic development within the Centre is working with teaching staff in developing effective pedagogical strategies that reflect a learner-centred curriculum.
