Teaching excellence in a contemporary research-intensive university

This University has long been recognised for the quality of its teaching and we were proud to be awarded the top grade of ‘TEF Gold’ in the recent national assessment exercise. Yet, as a research-intensive university, we can never stand still. We are always seeking to improve our practices and to learn with and from each other, our students and our colleagues across the sector - nationally and internationally. So, we are delighted to announce our new institute for teaching excellence in higher education.


The Higher Education Futures institute (HEFi)

The aim of HEFi is to support academic staff to deliver effective and innovative teaching throughout their careers. We are a research-intensive institution, and our research-led teaching ensures that our students are engaged in research-intensive learning. This is essential if higher education is to prepare students for their futures.

HEFi brings into one institute all our staff development activity (formerly CLAD), digital education innovation and support (formerly TEL-Hub) and research on practice (formerly the Teaching Academy). All these activities and staff are now part of HEFi and can be accessed through this website. HEFi is both internal and external in its remit: we want to share our practices and learn with and from our colleagues elsewhere.
