The Williams Centre for Learning Advancement (WCLA) will focus on developing the learning associated with a shift towards new teaching pedagogy for our staff.
Inspired by Professor Williams who was a faculty leader at the forefront of change management and teaching advancement: the centre again hopes to steer the Faculty through major pedagogical changes, including the incorporation of information technology in teaching and learning. Our aim is to have the centre be the first point of call for teaching development needs for FBE staff and provided customised solutions when needed. Our long term aim is to improve the learning experience for the staff and students and maximise student learning outcomes.
WCLA also supports the Faculty of Business and Economics in its Assurance of Learning process that is designed to ensure that student learning outcomes are achieved.
