Teaching Innovations

60+ quick ideas to enhance your learning and teaching

Welcome to our teaching ideas library! This site brings together the best and most transferable learning and teaching practices, drawn from colleagues across the University of Surrey. It recognises the range of excellent ideas, shares those ideas with colleagues, and contributes to the development of institutional knowledge. 

The site is divided into nine key areas. Each contains short videos or written summaries, created by colleagues, outlining what they have done to enhance their provision.
