Innovation and Good Practice

main content

Education Enhancement supports a range of projects to develop and share good practice in learning and teaching.

Sharing Practice in Effective Learning and Teaching (SPELT)

SPELT is a website containing case studies contributed by colleagues from across the university. It has case studies on a wide range of topics including assessment and feedback, online learning and interdisciplinary teaching and learning. To add a case study to the website, please please download and complete the submission form, or contact with any questions.


Student Transitions

The current QAA Enhancement Theme is “Student Transitions”: supporting students to arrive at university, progress through key changes during their study, and to move into employment or further study at the end of their programme. Information about Strathclyde’s work around the theme is available on the Student Transitions page

Vertically Integrated Projects (VIPs)

Vertically Integrated Projects bring together undergraduates from different years and departments with postgraduates and academic staff to work on real-world research projects. The VIP model was developed at Georgia Tech University in the US, and there is now an international VIP consortium containing Strathclyde University. Strathclyde runs a range of VIPs across a number of disciplines, please visit the VIP page for more information.

Transforming the Experience of Students Through Assessment (TESTA)

TESTA is a process that helps Departments/Schools to understand their students’ perceptions of assessment and feedback, and to make programme improvements. By collecting and analysing a range of data, TESTA gives a birds-eye view of the impact that assessment and feedback processes are having on students, and provides a space for staff to reflect on what is working and what improvements might be possible. TESTA is provided as a centrally-resourced initiative for Departments/Schools about to undergo Internal Review, and as a tool for Departments/Schools and programme teams to use themselves. More information is available on the TESTA Tools page.
