About CELT

The Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching delivers high quality and relevant training and support for teaching, with an all-academic and University-wide remit. Staff in CELT, which is double the size of the previous Academic Development Unit, provides support and guidance on all aspects of teaching, learning and assessement. The CELT team works closely with colleagues in Human Resources, IT Services, Student Services, the International Education Centre and other Central Services. Importantly, the Centre includes both full-time staff and colleagues on a secondment who are currently teaching in Colleges across the University, ensuring that there is an integrated approach to offering support.

CELT coordinates a number of important aspects of professional development, including the dissemination of best practice in teaching across the University, pedagogic research and associated grant capture, teaching-related staff induction, student satisfaction, Open Educational Resources, and the development and promoting of electronic and other innovative learning technologies. In addition, the Centre offers guidance for staff at all stages of their career to gain professional recognition for their teaching and offer support and advice on applying for teaching excellence award such as the National Teaching Fellows Scheme.
