Welcome to the August issue of Teaching Matters!


Teaching Matters is the University of Edinburgh’s website for debate about learning and teaching, for sharing ideas and approaches to teaching, and for showcasing our successes, including academic colleagues who are leading the way in delivering brilliant teaching.

Every month we take a theme and explore it through a video highlighting one of our outstanding teachers, and a number of blog contributions over the month. We also add news items as they come in and run an events listing page.

The theme for this month is student-led learning. This month’s Teaching Matters features student-led learning practices from around the University, including:

  • Posts from students undertaking Edinburgh Award internships
  • A reflection on student-led learning from a Head of School

We hope that you enjoy this edition of Teaching Matters and encourage you to get involved. Let us have your news, let us know when you are organising events on learning and teaching we can publicise, sign up to receive notifications when new blogs are published, and send in your own blogs and comments.
