CIRTL Projects

Research, Teach, Learn.

CIRTL has a strong research profile and demonstrates academic leadership in the scholarship of teaching and learning. The Centre produces high quality research with regularly published output in leading national and international academic journals and texts. CIRTL are currently a partner on three Erasmus+ Capacity Building projects, and are host to an ASSISTID Marie Curie Fellow. The CIRTL team have research interests in a broad range of themes related to higher education, including:

  • The scholarship of teaching and learning;
  • Teaching and learning spaces;
  • Staff professional development in teaching and learning in higher education;
  • Community based research and learning;
  • Assessment;
  • Active learning approaches;
  • Embedding undergraduate research in the curriculum;
  • Universal design for learning;
  • Arts based approaches to teaching and learning;
  • Disciplinary identity.

We welcome staff and students who may wish to partner with us on these activities. We also provide support and guidance to staff wishing to undertake the own research, whether as part of the MA in T&L, in response to National or institutional funded projects, or in response to an interesting question around student learning. Information on securing ethical approval for your T&L research can be found here
