Resources in action

300x200pxThis section offers demonstrations of the ways that LearnHigher and other resources have been adapted and used in practice to support student learning development and success. You will find here a list of case studies to inspire your teaching. Why not let us know how you use our resources to inspire others?

It also includes our award-winning workshop toolkits.  Under the name ‘Resources for Tutors’, they were awarded third place at the 2009 Jorum Learning and Teaching awards, and was also shortlisted for the Epigeum Video resources awards 2009. The resources also won an Effective Practices award at the 2010 Sloan-Merlot Conference, San Jose, USA.
