One of the potential barriers to adopting new approaches to teaching is a lack of evidence as to what works.
To counter this, this section of our Web site is dedicated to collating examples of innovative learning and teaching methods. Each case study focuses on a particular innovation and consists of a brief description that will address the following questions:
- What was its purpose?
- How was it integrated into the curriculum?
- How did it work?
- What problems were encountered?
- How did the students respond?
If you would like your own work to be showcased, please contact Martin Poulter at the Network.
