    • Faculties and the whole institution through evidence-informed contributions to debate and leadership of projects and interventions to develop practice, guidance and policy to ensure high quality programmes and student experiences.

    Over the next five years we plan to transform the ways we deliver our support for educational delivery by: growing our holistic and personalised professional development framework for academic staff; aligning our work explicitly to deliver institutional strategy;

    working even more closely with student voice and with students as partners across all our services; supporting the adoption of appropriate digital tools and solutions by individuals, teams and the university to meet educational goals; and by continuing to ensure that all our support is research-informed and results in evidence-based enhancements to the experiences of Oxford Brookes students and staff.
