Effective Practice Hub

Welcome to the Effective Practice Hub

Where you can find support for collaboration and innovation in teaching and learning at the University of Manchester. The Hub is a platform to promote dialogue and share good practice across the University and also draws on inspiration and experience from across the HE sector. Here you will find clear guidance and support to find reusable resources for multidisciplinary requirements. The Hub will also be a useful place to identify training needs to further support effective sharing of teaching innovations.

The Underlying Principles and aim for any Effective Practice Hub is to:
  • Identify and define relevant areas and underlying principles
  • Identify and collate Effective Practice relevant to the specific operational group
  • Support and facilitate collaboration and innovation.
  • Provide clear guidance and support to enable reusability of resources which meet multidisciplinary requirements.
  • Identify training needs to further support effective sharing of teaching innovations.
  • Ensure co-creation of students and staff working in partnership, so that students have a voice and a stake in the development of the hubs.

Three pilot hubs are being developed in the first instance; Assessment and Feedback, Digital Capabilities, and Research Methods. If you any have useful examples from your teaching that you would be willing to share with colleagues in these areas then please contact effective.practice@manchester.ac.uk with a brief summary/sentence.
