There are 81 Higher Education CETLs, or Centres for
Excellence in Teaching and Learning, throughout England and Northern
Institutional E-learning Services
the name of the CETL based in the Institute of Lifelong Learning,
University of Ulster, founded in May 2005.
The CIES project aims to:
- reward high quality e-learning;
- help staff to have a fuller understanding of the learner's
- provide teacher and learner support;
- share good examples of 'learner centred' teaching;
- create online tools/resources to improve teaching and learning.
CIES is currently developing a suite of tools for staff, aimed
at enhancing teaching and learning. These tools include:
Once the tools are fully implemented amongst teachers, a recognition and reward scheme will be rolled out. Staff who display exemplary practice in online teaching will be rewarded with a year's access to a team of content developers who will help them create other high quality learning activities and resources.
Eventually, all these tools will be brought together in a central
environment called 'iLearn', embedded in the University's virtual
learning environment, WebCT Vista.
For more information on each individual tool, please visit the
'Your Toolbox' section of this site.
