Learning materials and resources

Overview and expectations

The University expects staff, with support as necessary, to take responsibility for producing high-quality and inclusive resources to support student learning. These may include presentations, handouts, bibliographies, problem-sheets, lab-scripts, and/or online and digital resources.

Staff should ensure that the material they are teaching is up-to-date and reflects contemporary thinking and themes.

Individuals will sometimes be asked to teach on topics which do not directly relate to their particular area(s) of expertise, but even in such cases they should be sufficiently prepared to be able to structure material sensibly, to teach clearly and to engage students in effective learning.

The design of learning materials and resources for modules should reflect the learning outcomes of the programmes to which they contribute, to ensure that they support students’ progressive achievement of these concepts and skills in the most effective way.
