Learning and Teaching

Our future

Enabling transition to 2020

The enablers for implementation of our vision for learning and teaching are many and varied. We have sets of dependencies that need to be facilitated through shared vision making and collective engagement. The next stage of implementation planning will be critical for Schools, Professional Services and students to understand and enact the ongoing revitalisation and renewal of our curriculum, pedagogies, environments and communities.

To achieve our goal to become a world leading university with strengths in learning and teaching and research, the whole University must contribute to the realisation of this vision. Towards this end, we will work collaboratively and organise our action around annual themes designed to balance our immediate needs for renewal and revitalisation, with recognition of our notable and continuing achievements in learning and teaching.
