Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning: Critical Interventions for Enhanced Learning (CIEL)

What is CIEL?

Our CETL was based on the first-year student experience and is multi-disciplinary.  It identified excellent practice in four areas: Art & Design; Applied Sciences; Humanities, Languages and Social Sciences and Education. These practices comprise critical interventions for the enhancement of retention, achievement and progression. 

CIEL identified pedagogies, support systems, activities and initiatives that in some way offer critical interventions to help a student on the journey towards successfully achieving their goals.
