Academic Development

The Academic Development team is part of Teesside University's Student Learning & Academic Registry.

The team manages a number of institutional level Learning & Teaching projects along with nurturing teaching excellence through the coordination of external recognition and promotional pathways in relation to Learning and Teaching. Working closely with all workstreams across SLAR to develop and disseminate a broad range of Learning and Teaching practices to enhance the quality of the student experience.

The team supports the implementation of the University corporate strategy by promoting innovation in pedagogic practice to enhance the student learning experience with particular emphasis on:

  • Promoting teaching excellence: the promotion of teaching excellence is at the heart of our work within ACD. This includes the development and delivery of CPD sessions relating to innovative pedagogies, regular symposia and conferences featuring sector-leading keynote speakers and our Advance HE Accredited Professional Development Framework ( RELT - Recognising Excellence in Learning and Teaching). The team are also regular contributors to LTE Online.
  • Coordinating SLAR projects: the team coordinate SLAR led projects to improve University operations and enhance the experience for staff and students. The team provide mechanisms to define and design projects to find solutions and evaluate their impact.
  • Engagement with TNE partners: the workstream will coordinate University engagement with TNE partners, delivering service excellence in our interface with partners across the globe.
