Learning, teaching and assessment

Championing digital innovation in learning, teaching, and assessment. 

The world has changed, and so has education. The combination of rapidly advancing technology and a global pandemic has accelerated the evolution of how we teach and learn. Everything from assessment and curriculum design to how we use our physical spaces and the digital resources we access is changing.

Together with our members in higher and further education, we are reimagining the future of learning and teaching and what it takes to ensure a digitally enabled workforce for the future.
