What do we do?
The Leicester Learning Institute works to inspire better teaching, learning and assessment in higher education. We are a dedicated team of Teaching Fellows and professional colleagues who work closely with the PVC Student Experience and College Academic Directors to drive up the quality of teaching. We invite all members of the University to join us in this endeavour. You can sign up to our regular newsletter, attend our events or workshops, or arrange a conversation with one of us directly.
