The Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) promotes excellence in learning and teaching, and supports our strategic plan University, reimagined. TILT is an institution-wide community of practice that recognises inspirational teaching at NTU, shares innovative practice, and investigates emerging themes in learning and teaching.
The Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) launched in 2015 as an initiative to support excellence in learning and teaching at NTU, and to celebrate, recognise and exchange innovative learning and teaching practice.
Vice-Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching
The Vice-Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching celebrates inspirational teaching at Nottingham Trent University.
The TILT Sabbatical Scheme provides individuals, pairs or groups of colleagues with the funded opportunity to pursue scholarship that will advance the strategic aims of the university and impact positively on learning and teaching at NTU and across the sector.
Scholarship Projects for Undergraduate Researchers (SPUR)
The SPUR scheme offers funded opportunities for NTU students to collaborate with academic staff on cutting edge research projects in a shared field of interest. Working together allows for the development of new knowledge that can feed into the curriculum, enhance the student academic experience and be shared with the wider community.
The Seedcorn Fund provides colleagues with a small amount of seed funding for preliminary ‘blue sky’ exploratory Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects that have potential to develop into more substantial projects in the future.
Annual Learning and Teaching Conference
The TILT Annual Learning and Teaching Conference (ALTC) is an annual event which showcases innovative practice in learning and teaching, with each year focusing on a different theme. The ALTC offers the opportunity to meet with colleagues and participate in a dialogue that aims to advance the theories and practices of learning and teaching.
