New case studies section launched

23 November 2012

The Teaching and Learning Portal has launched a new case studies section dedicated to showcasing inspirational work taking place around UCL.

Case studies section screen shot

The section is divided into different areas of teaching and learning, including large-group teaching, small-group teaching, e-learning, assessment and feedback, internationalisation of the curriculum and global citizenship, peer observation of teaching, research-led learning, peer-assisted learning, personal tutoring, and key skills.

Each case study also contains practical information on what to do or who to contact if the project you've read about inspires you to start something similar yourself.

The section will be updated on an ongoing basis, so if you or anyone you know is doing good work that others around UCL might be interested in, please get in contact with Teaching and Learning Portal Ele Cooper ( so a case study can be created based on your work.
