Partnering with students in innovation

We believe that collaborating with our students is essential to enhance the learning environment and their experience at Manchester. Our partnership makes our innovations more effective and richer.

Collaboration with learning technologists

An important part of our work will involve direct collaboration with Learning Technologists, who provide expertise, ideas and support in our pedagogical research.

A centre for research in pedagogy

By its nature, the Centre is a catalyst for pedagogical research.

We aim to support an environment rich for pedagogical research bringing together academics across the School of Social Sciences. Our research and events will support the dissemination of our work with the aim of making an impact on teaching at Manchester and the wider HE teaching community.
