Strengthening Scholarly Activities to Improving Teaching and Learning

Strengthening research to improve teaching and learning - Teacher with students

 

Our regional reputation as a leading tertiary education institution will only come about if we are to promote the best in teaching. Very often the best teachers are also very capable practicing scholars, whether in their own discipline and/or in the Science of Learning. They encourage their students through innovative pedagogies and up-to-date knowledge to transfer their learning skills so that they can be applied in a variety of scenarios, and teach them to learn how to learn.
