Teaching and Learning. We at BUE are committed to providing our students not merely with degrees but also with the skills to put what they have learned to use in their careers. This enables them, whenever they change employment, to apply these skills to new areas. This is a key part of the University’s Strategic Plan and it naturally depends on the nature and quality of our teaching.

BUE ensures that teaching is fit for this purpose by aligning it with the most enlightened current international developments in teaching and learning. They seek to make possible, as a core component of the Student Experience, teaching that is communicative, project based and student centred.

The Centre for Teaching and Learning supports this important objective with numerous resources. You are invited to review and use them. We will also appreciate your suggestions as to how the continuing usefulness of the Centre can be enhanced.
