Case Studies of Teaching Practice

Welcome to the Newcastle University Good Practice in Teaching and Learning Database. This is a resource for all staff to help share great ideas for teaching across the University.  From using peer review to improve essay writing to buddy systems for PG teaching staff, bringing in industry professionals to student-input in module design, the database has practical solutions to everyday teaching problems, with advice on how schemes were set up and why they’re successful.

The website is easy to search using the tabs above,  and you can also scroll through categories of examples, including ‘Assessment and Feedback’ and ‘Research-informed Teaching’, to see how colleagues in other Schools are responding to particular challenges or better incorporating their own research into their teaching practice.

Please do feel free to submit your own Case Study, and share your own teaching practice.
