1 Learning Development: for students and for staff Teaching and Learning Directorate Awayday 9 th April, 2010

2 Learning Development is unique. We are student facing: providing a safe space outside programmes to get unbiased and confidential advice providing expertise and specialist knowledge when the student needs it close to real student issues, hearing authentic student voices and, where appropriate, closing the loop by feeding back to staff through formal and informal channels

3 As a result of attending a tutorial… 80% say they feel more confident 90% say there is an improvement in their academic work They also say: –‘Knowing that there is someone there who really wants to help and has a wealth of valuable knowledge’ –‘better grades and better understanding and also I have much more confidence’ –‘it has given me a real boost to carry on with my studies and I have more confidence when approaching work’

4 Learning Development is unique. We are staff facing: designing and disseminating materials and resources for staff use. For example WrAssE and LearnHigher CETL ( critical thinking video resource )( critical thinking video resource ) sharing expertise to support staff embedding skills for learning in their programmes facilitating collaboratively designed sessions in programmes for the specific subject, task or assignment developing our knowledge and expertise through active national and international research and professional networks
