Bringing people together from across the collegiate University to enhance and support teaching and assessment practice
Our vision is to create conditions throughout Oxford where excellence in teaching and assessment can thrive.
One way in which we do this is by bringing educators, administrators and students together through our facilitated education community to build and strengthen connections across the University.
The community offers different opportunities for staff to enhance and support their practice – from user groups and open networks, to special interest groups.
- User groups focus on specific tools and provide opportunities to share knowledge, solve problems and stay current, for example, the Digital Education Technologies User Group.
- Special interest groups focus on specific topics or themes, and provide opportunities to find solutions to particular challenges, for example, the Academic Skills Special Interest Group.
- Open networks focus on different staff groups and provide opportunities for open discussion around a topic or theme.
We provide the infrastructure to facilitate conversations that reflect how different disciplines and subjects teach and assess, and we make best use of digital collaboration tools to ensure equitable access and participation for everyone.
Each group is facilitated by the Centre for Teaching and Learning, working in collaboration with educators across Oxford.
