Have you got an example of a teaching technique that is really effective? Would you like to pick up ideas from colleagues or hear about the key trends and latest innovations across the HE sector?

This blog provides an up-to-date collection of information, project summaries, brief case studies, hints and tips and other resources on learning and teaching from the University of Bath and beyond. It aims to promote, celebrate and catalogue good practice at the University; your contributions are always welcome

If you are willing to share some of your methods, practices, experiences, or lessons learnt from your teaching, these can be very helpful as examples to colleagues here and new academics. These could be single, quick to describe, methods or larger projects. They do not need to be ‘innovative’ or new.

We can help you to create, quickly and informally,

  • Video – short (2-3min) informal talking head video filmed in your office
  • Audio – discussion around a microphone (5-10mins)
  • Written – short (1-2 page) written account

Contact Academic Staff Development to begin the exchange of your ideas.

The resources have been organised into the following categories:
