Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching

The Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) works with Faculties and Support Services on the support, development, and recognition of staff and students as educational developers, practitioners, researchers, and leaders.

The Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching has five strands of activity:

  1. Professional development: offering opportunities for you to try out new things, share what you do with others and get in-time help as issues crop up;
  2. Community Building and sharing: working to connect people and enable collaboration and shared projects around common themes of interest;
  3. Internal and External Recognition: running and coordinating the mentoring and assessment support for TSL@USW (HEA Fellowship Scheme), and working with you to develop applications and claims for external teaching / learning support competitions;
  4. Pedagogic Research: undertaking research into aspects of the USW student learning experience, keeping up-to-date with what is going on / coming in the sector to support thought leadership around teaching / learning support, and collaborating / supporting you to enquire critically into your practice and share your thoughts and findings;
  5. Infrastructure and Projects: working on in-house systems to enable you to evidence your CPD, and working with other departments to develop and sustain critical infrastructures e.g. learning systems and digital literacy development that act as foundations for our USW Student Learning Experience.

CELT has developed an infographic to illustrate how it can work with you, your Faculty and Professional Service to support, share and grow our excellent work here at USW.
