ARU is developing its engagement with pedagogic research in higher education. Anglia Learning & Teaching is the central point of contact for this growing area of study.

We are passionate about ensuring that knowledge, experience and strategies are shared across our university.  Work has included establishing the Pedagogic Research Directory and a cross faculty research group to support the development of educational expertise.
