A virtual space supporting continual enhancement of the student learning experience.
We have identified five key 'themes' or areas of focus for the Learning Hub. These themes reflect key areas of activity and expertise across Cardiff University, and will evolve to reflect the ever changing nature of learning and teaching in Higher Education.
Designing for learning
Good curriculum design and programme development is fundamental for embedding good practice in learning and teaching. Investigate examples of how different learning approaches (e.g. technology enhanced learning, inquiry-based learning, distance learning) have been developed to support and demonstrate intended aims and objectives.
Providing students with a full range of high-quality academic, administrative and pastoral support is an essential part of the student experience. Discover how mechanisms such as Personal Tutoring and Student Mentoring support students to develop both academically and as individuals.
