Teaching principles and strategies

Translating teaching principles into practice

The following five principles and their associated practices have been primarily derived from the University's Code of Conduct for Teaching and Learning, Code of Conduct in Supervision, Policy on Generic Attributes of Graduates and the selection criteria for the Teaching Excellence Awards.

The Code of Conduct for Teaching and Learning states:

The University undertakes to provide a secure, supportive, yet challenging environment for teaching & learning and research supervision - an environment in which students will be stimulated to reach a high level of intellectual attainment.

The principles provide a framework for lecturers and tutors to work within in order to achieve teaching practices that are not only rewarding for students but also those who contribute to their learning.
