INSPIRING INNOVATION
The LTA will inspire innovation and creative thinking and action. We will do this by opening space for critical conversations, for trialling new ideas, and for actively engaging in pedagogic research and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
SUPPORTING THE SCHOLARSHIP OF TEACHING AND LEARNING
PIONEERING IN LEARNING AND TEACHING THINK-TANK
12 LEARNING + TEACHING academy
The LTA enables staff to deepen their practice through supported engagement in the scholarship of learning and teaching. This enables staff to critically explore and creatively develop their teaching practice and to study, share and disseminate  ndings within Heriot-Watt and across the higher education sector.
As the LTA community strengthens, we will initiate an institutional Think-Tank to lead on our horizon- scanning work, exploring the trends, challenges and new opportunities that we will be confronted within the coming years. The Think-Tank will
bring together staff and students from across the University with key thinkers in higher education policy and pedagogy to consider what Inspiring Learning and Inspiring Teaching may mean in the next decades and how we can be at the forefront of shaping it.
