Working with individuals, programmes, departments, schools, faculties and external bodies, we will work to address challenges in learning and teaching, and identify innovative pedagogic solutions. We will develop and design effective interventions to improve our pedagogic delivery.
Student Action Committee
This group of 8-12 students works with CAI to provide a forum for students’ views in relation to learning and teaching concerns of students as well as develop solutions. The format is a participatory approach to the co-production of knowledge with students positioned as both students and teachers in a dialogical process.
UDL pedagogy, assessment and feedback
In supporting DMU’s teaching and learning strategy, CAI is the new home of UDL and will be supporting its embedding as well as its dissemination. It will work with relevant parties across the university to support the different components of UDL.
CAI works with staff across DMU and beyond to initiate and support fellowships that facilitate the freedom of staff to explore pedagogy more critically and in a deeper way to develop tools in response.
CAI places research-informed teaching and teaching-informed research at the heart of what it does by supporting individuals and subject groups to recognise the symbiotic relationship between teaching and research and to develop programmes that enhance teaching and learning across DMU and beyond. CAI curates a learning space which is designed to be flexible, open and engaging; encouraging staff to share and disseminate their practice and explore new methods and opportunities.
CAI Advisory Board
This is a group of recognised and responsible experts with a key stake in teaching and learning in DMU and beyond who act as critical friends of CAI. The board meets regularly to critique and support the work of CAI.
Home of TFs/NTFs
CAI is working to set up a TF/NTF community of practice, headed by an elected community of DMU TFs and NTFs. This community of practice will initiate and support pedagogy across DMU and beyond through mentoring, seminars, observations, roadshows and also through other responsive means.
