Vol 1 No 2 - out now

The publication offers an in-depth look at teaching-related research and projects at the University, and aims to provide innovative ideas and an insight into what colleagues are doing. It charts developments and provides a natural publication outlet for TALIF grant-holders, participants of CHEP, and any other members of staff involved in relevant activities. It is principally online but limited hardcopies of each issue are available at Learning and Development events.

Our main aims

  • To encourage a scholarly approach to learning and teaching at Essex
  • To establish a community of practice among innovators
  • To showcase innovations and excellence in teaching at Essex, its partner institutions and beyond
  • To provide a means for CHEP assignments and TALIF projects to be more widely disseminated
  • To positively impact on the learning experience of Essex students
