Two more to learn

A nationwide network of centres supporting high-quality learning and teaching in 24 subject disciplines has been given a further two years of life, following additional funding from the four UK HE funding bodies. Leeds is the only university that plays host to two subject centres: biosciences and philosophical and religious studies (PRS).

The learning and teaching support network (LTSN) was set up in 1999 to encourage innovation in all aspects of learning, teaching and assessment, and to co-ordinate and share information, knowledge and expertise, saving lecturers precious time in designing courses and preparing materials.

Director of the biosciences centre, Professor Ed Wood is delighted by the funding announcement: "Our team have worked really hard, and it's good to know our efforts have been recognised." PRS centre director George MacDonald Ross was equally happy: "The extension of funding to a five year period allows us to consolidate our activities, and we look forward to a further extension beyond 2004."
