Institutional Learning and Teaching Strategy

Responsibility for developing and promoting teaching and learning strategy at UCL lies with Professor Anthony Smith, Vice-Provost (Education). The university's teaching strategy documents can be downloaded from the 'Quick Links' section on the right.

Each department is expected to produce its own Departmental Learning and Teaching Strategy (DLTS) on a three-yearly basis. The DLTSs for 2012-2015 were submitted in March 2012 and will be available on the portal shortly.

Monitoring academic quality and standards is the responsibility of the new Academic Support department, which co-ordinates UCL's quality management and enhancement (QME) operations. A network of UCL standing committees and sub-committees oversee the teaching and learning agenda.

The five-year Institutional Learning and Teaching Strategy (downloadable using the link in the right-hand column) aims to ensure that, by 2015, UCL will have:

  • Moved to an internationalised curriculum in all disciplines
  • Created an environment which fosters and rewards excellence in teaching, with a high profile for teaching as an academic activity
  • Invested in innovation in teaching to drive UCL’s reputation internationally
