Picture of ILT

The Institute of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILT) is a central unit at the University of Northampton. As a largely ‘virtual’ institute, it employs only a small number of staff directly (shown left-right in photo):

The underpinning ethos is one of providing a central point of support and reference for all staff and services across the University, working closely with academics in all four faculties as well as with colleagues in our Professional Services departments. Key partners in our Professional Services departments include Library and Learning Services, specifically the Learning Technology Team which includes a new resource in the form of Learning Designers whose role is to work with staff as we move to a blended model of learning and teaching across all programme and subject areas and also the Learning Development team.

Key Areas of Activity

ILT focuses on three key areas of activities:

  • Intellectual Capital
  • Student Experience
  • Learning and Teaching Enhancement and Innovation
