Teaching and Learning Unit
The Teaching & Learning Unit at CIT was formed in September 2008. Membership of the TLU is drawn from each Faculty within the Institute with additional members bringing expertise in areas of e-learning and teaching with technology. Activities are varied but primarily revolve around workshops and courses provided to staff in areas such as instructional and curriculum design, assessment, problem-based learning, and technology-enhanced learning. The TLU is research active, with new teaching and learning approaches and methodologies constantly being piloted and, as appropriate, mainstreamed in the Institute.
Located within the Office of the Registrar and VP for Academic Affairs, the TLU supports the work of the Registrar in a wide range of quality enhancement initiatives. These initiatives range from developing effective teaching and learning environments, developing and disseminating Institute policies on teaching, learning and assessment and supporting the design of modules and programmes.
