Learning and Teaching at Hope

The Learning and Teaching team works with staff and students to develop and promote best practice in learning and teaching, which inspires our students to achieve their full academic potential.

Learning and Teaching work in partnership, supporting and encouraging collaboration within and between academic departments, developing innovations, researching best practice, and leading and facilitating initiatives that allow the sharing of ideas and practice. 

The Learning and Teaching team is:

Dr John Bennett, Director of Learning and Teaching Development
Dr Lynn Hilditch, Learning, Teaching and Quality Officer
Dave Aldridge, Educational Technologist
Elpiniki Smith, Course Designer
Philip Jones, Administrator

Our key roles are:

  • Working with colleagues across the university to achieve the pedagogical  goals set out in the Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy;
  • Providing continuing professional development for colleagues who teach and support the learning of students including through the PGCert in Learning and Teaching in HE and other training workshops; 
  • Developing policies for learning and teaching and providing guidance on these to colleagues in the departments;
  • Supporting the development and approval of new programmes via co-design events;
  • Encouraging and sharing innovative practice in teaching and supporting learning through our network of Communities of Practice and Learning and Teaching Day events.

Learning and Teaching at Liverpool Hope is underpinned from three different perspectives (see diagram below):

  • The formal University system that oversees process, enhancement and quality assurance (the committee structure and other systems);
  • The CPD programme; and
  • The Communities of Practice Network.
