The Arts Learning and Teaching (ALTR) Research Group in located in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Wolverhampton. We are a group of academics who broadly share research interests in learning and teaching.
In tackling contemporary learning and teaching issues, the Faculty of Arts engages with on-going development of innovative approaches that bridge conventional boundaries between research disciplines and creative solutions to the challenges involved with the contemporary curriculum. The University of Wolverhampton responded to these overall challenges with the foundation of the College of Learning and Teaching (CoLT) and the establishment of connected professorial posts in Learning and Teaching in each Faculty.
