Learning and Teaching Strategy

This Strategy, which has been developed by a Working Group of the Learning and Teaching Sub-Committee of Academic Council, brings together many strands in DkIT’s activities, hopes and intention about Learning and Teaching in the Institute. Learning and Teaching impacts every member of DkIT and is the core of what we do. The establishment of a Teaching and Learning Sub-Committee at Academic Council illustrates the importance now accorded to Learning and Teaching by the Institute.

In developing the Strategy it is anticipated that it will:
-Transform DkIT’s existing approaches to learning and teaching
-Enable flexible and responsive change to the needs of staff and students
-Foster the use of ‘best practice’ in teaching and learning using both traditional and innovative approaches
-Allow all to be learners
-Influence learners in DkIT by giving them skills, competences, knowledge and attitudes to facilitate their participation in
the Knowledge Society
-Encourage participation and reflection among learners resulting in insight and action
-Impact on the development of the North East and border region in providing knowledge transfer, skilled graduates and a knowledge infrastructure and research capacity
-Empower and motivate the Learning Community of DkIT
-Offer a source of Competitive Advantage.
