The University of Wolverhampton’s Learning & Teaching Strategy identifies three key Development Priorities for 2016-21:
These Development Priorities, and the associated Enabling Activities, support, and align with, Pillar 1 of the University’s Strategic Plan (2016-2021):
At the University of Wolverhampton we believe that students are our partners with a continuing joint investment in sustaining our institutional reputation for excellence in innovation, knowledge transfer and research. Students will benefit from teaching that is linked with professional practice, scholarship and research. They will graduate with the ability to operate in a fast-changing, dynamic and evolving world. Our teachers will be adept at linking professional practice, scholarship and research to their teaching to create a responsive, expert-based learning environment. We aim to develop students who are critically reflective, entrepreneurial, employable, digitally literate, well networked and socially responsible, in line with our institutional graduate attributes.
Building on the embedding of proven successful learning and teaching developments into mainstream systems, this strategy will use a focus on Graduate Attributes to bring the strategic development of its learning and teaching into line with other relevant strategies. It will be a major vehicle by which improvement in student recruitment, retention, satisfaction, achievement and progression will be achieved.
This transitional strategy covers a period of two years in order to bring the current Learning and Teaching Strategy, Blended Learning Strategy into line with a new university strategic plan by 2012.
