Teaching administration: case studies

Teaching administration covers a wide variety of tasks, all contributing to an excellent student experience. Learn more about the different approaches across UCL.

A teaching administrator is a member of professional services staff based in an academic department, division or institute, whose role involves a substantial amount of student- and/or teaching-related responsibilities.

The job title varies across UCL, as does the exact content, but it can include: admissions-related tasks, alumni, careers and e-learning, examinations, maintaining student records, pastoral support of students, quality assurance of teaching and timetabling and room bookings.

The organisation of teaching administration is quite varied from department to department, leading to lots of different approaches and examples of best practice.
