E-Learning Strategy

The E-Learning Strategy 2013-2020 sets out a vision for the future learning environment at the University of Glasgow and outlines how e-learning can support this vision. It identifies specific strategic priorities for the coming years and the enablers that will allow the delivery of these priorities. The Strategy does not tell staff how to teach or students how to learn but rather seeks to empower them by increasing both the range and accessibility of the methods they can adopt.

The strategy builds on the aspirational vision for our learning environment originally outlined in the University strategic plan and further developed in our Learning and Teaching Strategy. It specifically addresses the core commitment that “the learning experience will be enhanced by physical and virtual infrastructure of the highest quality and excellent learning resources that are targeted to address our diverse learning community’s needs and to provide them with flexibility in what, how, when and where they learn”.

Learning and Teaching Strategy

The Learning & Teaching Strategy constitutes the University’s strategy for quality enhancement.  The most recent version was developed by the Vice Principal (Academic & Educational Innovation) following wide consultation with staff across the University.  It was subsequently approved by Senate in October 2015.

As part of the Strategy, Learning and Teaching Committee will developed an Action Plan to facilitate the implementation of the strategic objectives. The Action Plan will bring together actions identified through internal review (including internal audit) and other quality and strategic processes to align activities in a way that will promote co-ordinated effort, allow monitoring of progress and help enhance the impact of the actions taken.

The Learning and Teaching Strategy and Action Plan will be overseen by the Education Policy and Strategy Committee (EdPSC) with responsibility for specific actions delegated to a range of University committees and/or services.

The latest updates (June 2015) on the actions associated with the previous Learning and Teaching Strategy are provided below.
