Centre for Teaching and Learning Research (CTLR)


The Centre for Teaching and Learning Research aims to be responsive to members’ needs and interests, whilst promoting positive change in teaching and learning. The Centre is committed to delivering activity that allows practitioners and researchers to come together to make connections to build understanding across diverse settings and contexts, maximise the value of education across the life course, and bring together theory, policy, practice and research.

Details of upcoming events can be found on our homepage
Details of past events can be seen on our events archive pages.

CTLR members regularly meet for a variety of activities, ranging from networking to workshops and seminars with invited speakers. All members are actively encouraged to initiate activity and seek the support of centre management in realising their ideas. The School's Doctoral Researchers are warmly encouraged to attend all activities relevant to their research.

Open Research Seminars

CTLR Open Research Seminars provide an opportunity to hear invited speakers talk about aspects of their research. They are open to all. 

Doctoral Research in Progress Seminars

CTLR-hosted Doctoral Research in Progress Seminars are an opportunity to hear from our affiliated doctoral researchers at key points in their research journeys.

Space To Share

CTLR Space To Share events provide an opportunity to share perspectives on key issues of interest to our membership and also local stakeholders. It is a reflexive and flexible space so we also encourage it to be used to share our research more formatively as a way of developing our work. To arrange a Space To Share event, contact Louise Gazeley in the first instance.

Annual Change Event

As part of CTLR’s commitment to supporting the development of positive change in teaching and learning, it hosts an annual change event. Launched for the first time in 2018, these events generally take place in July. See details of and resources from the most recent event.
