About LTDS

What we do and how we do it.

Welcome to our new-look website. Any feedback or suggestions - please let us know.

What we do

LTDS supports the development and implementation of institutional strategy towards enhancing the university’s educational provision. We work with programme teams, academic units and faculties to help them realise their ambitions to improve the learning opportunities they give to students.

How we do it

The learning and teaching development service works with colleagues across Newcastle University. Together we create and support delivery of the future of teaching and learning across the institution.

  • We support the development and implementation of institutional strategy for enhancing the University’s educational provision. We work with programme teams, academic units and faculties. We help them realise their ambitions to improve the learning opportunities they give to students.
  • We develop the institutional policy framework for managing quality and standards. We work closely with faculties and academic units to support them in implementing this framework. This assures the quality and standards of the academic awards achieved by Newcastle’s students.
  • We work in partnership across the service, and with academic units and other professional support services. We recognise the different but complementary expertise that exists within the University. Through all our activities, we promote the exchange of this knowledge and expertise.

Our Core Values

Collectively and as individuals, all our work is based on our core values. We:

  • ensure that everything we do contributes to the University’s mission of advancing education and learning
  • develop open and constructive partnerships within the Service and across the University, underpinned by a commitment to open, honest and effective communication
  • focus on the outcomes of what we do, always seeking to deliver the greatest effectiveness through our activities
  • adopt a problem-solving approach in all situations
