Strategic learning and teaching enhancement through funded teaching interventions
The University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest in the English-speaking world. In order to maintain the pace of learning and teaching development in line with recent changes in the student population (such as demographics, numbers, technological skill level and expectations) it is important for institutions such as Glasgow to support excellent and innovative learning and teaching at strategic levels. Strategic initiatives must be meaningful to encourage the appropriate changes in learning and teaching practices. This case study takes the Learning and Teaching Development Fund as an example of a strategic teaching intervention, and examines the ways in which its existence since 2000-01 has contributed to changes in teaching practices, the student experience, and to the ethos of teaching at the University of Glasgow.
