The Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) works to secure a consistent, high quality student experience through formal and informal continuing professional development opportunities for all staff at MMU. We can offer leadership, support, advice and guidance relating to all aspects of learning, teaching and assessment at MMU. CELT staff work with all faculties and all professional teams – this gives us the opportunity to share the ‘bigger picture’ with colleagues.
We support institutional priorities and projects that focus on areas of strategic importance. At the heart of this is a belief that engaging teaching and learning will have a positive influence on student engagement, retention, progression, success and employability.
CELT has developed a three part strategic plan in the context of student feedback and satisfaction in external and internal surveys, focus groups from all faculties which highlight the need for continuous development of the teaching staff, their skills and their awareness of how our current (and future students) learn.

CELT coordinates the teaching and learning elements of a number of agendas – Continuous Monitoring and Improvement, Student Satisfaction, Access Implementation, the Student Commitment and is committed to a CPD strategy for learning and teaching around a flexible, work-focused, priority driven framework which will be integral to staff development and recognition. See the new academic CPD plan here.
There will be several strands to this:
CELT is located on the 2nd Floor of the Cavendish Building , where we offer an Academic Practice Room, a meeting room and a small drop-in / social space to support the development activities of our own staff and of our colleagues from across the institution.
This website introduces our services and activities. Please get in touch if you have any development needs relating to learning, teaching and assessment practices – we look forward to working with you.
