Teaching and learning

  • OCSLD runs many courses open to Oxford Brookes University staff and other higher education practitioners (levels 4 and above in the UK Qualifications and Curriculum Framework (QCF).

    At Brookes we take pride in our teaching. In responding to the Quality Assurance Agency Audit, Former Vice-Chancellor Janet Beer said:

    It gave me particular pleasure to see us singled out for our strong teaching, … the success we have in the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme and our attention to the employability of our students. The quality of our teaching, informed by research and scholarship, has been and must continue to be our highest priority; we have maintained a pride and level of commitment to teaching in the face of manifold pressures and will continue to do so.

    Professor Janet Beer, Former Vice-Chancellor, Oxford Brookes University

    We maintain this reputation through an ongoing commitment to the development of academic practice and the scholarship of teaching and we find ourselves at the forefront, in our quiet way, of innovative institutional learning and teaching practice.
