We aim to encourage, foster and pursue innovation in teaching.
Our activities are wide-reaching and varied. We manage teacher training and the national Computing at School initiative. We run outreach activities, including visits to schools. We do market research for new degree programmes.
- review existing degree programmes
- develop employability skills
- maintain links with Industry
- establish teaching requirements for the move to Science Central
We aim to maximize the impact of innovation efforts on the School's teaching practices, programmes and curricula.
