Promoting, Encouraging, Assisting Learning Innovation's main aim is “to have a transformational influence on the enhancement of the student learning experience to include improved retention and progression through research-informed and evidence-based Learning, Teaching and Assessment practice”. Through LTAS, the University seeks to develop staff who are better able to adopt a flexible approach to developing students with enhanced learning capabilities. Learning Innovation will achieve this through a combination of staff development, research, scholarly activity and good practice, while also working with students to enhance their learning journey. Learning Innovation’s activities include preparation for subject health reviews and programme validations; working with staff to develop curriculum design and assessment; support for innovative uses of e-learning; embedding learning development in programmes; working with students to develop their resilience alongside their academic literacies; providing support for a range of initiatives including Moodle, Mahara, Turnitin and Personal Development Planning; implementing action plans; membership of subject development groups; engagement with Faculty Teaching and Learning Forums and assistance with needs analysis.
