more to learn
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).
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.
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."
