Learning and Teaching Strategy
The University of Westminster’s Learning and Teaching Strategy for 2015-2020 was developed to:
- set out the strategic priorities of the University in respect to learning and teaching
- align with the University’s 2020 Strategy
- embody the principles of learning and teaching developed through the Learning Futures programme
The strategic priorities set out by the Learning and Teaching Strategy are:
We will offer a distinctive, challenging and inspiring curriculum designed to develop the capabilities our graduates need to be highly employable, effective practitioners with a global perspective in a constantly evolving professional world.
We will foster learning communities in which students, staff and other stakeholders work collaboratively as partners in the construction of knowledge and understanding and in the development of the curriculum.
Research, inquiry and practice
We will maintain learning, teaching and assessment practices that enable students to experience learning through research and inquiry, and through engagement with disciplinary and professional practices.
Inclusivity and flexibility
We will promote an inclusive curriculum that caters for the requirements and expectations of our diverse learning communities.
Teaching and supporting learning
We will ensure that those involved in teaching and supporting learning are appropriately qualified, supported and rewarded and that our learning and teaching practices are informed by scholarship and reflection.
Technology and infrastructure
We will integrate technologies into our learning environment to enhance learning and teaching, and we will develop an infrastructure that supports active participation in learning opportunities.
