Learning and teaching support

Students are the lifeblood of the University, and one area of focus, that supports Southampton’s overall education agenda is the delivering of excellent teaching sessions.

This includes student recruitment and support, widening participation, educational development, and the expansion of our education offering through the creation of inter-disciplinary modules and programmes.​

The Digital Learning Team, iSolutions and CHEP offer a great range of resources to enhance students learning, from classroom clickers for improved classroom feedback to using video and audio to change the delivery of lectures.
