Share Your Own Experiences

This section of our website is dedicated to collating examples of innovative learning and teaching methods. Each case study focuses on a particular innovation and consists of a brief description that will address the following questions:

  • What was its purpose?
  • How was it integrated into the curriculum?
  • How did it work?
  • What problems were encountered?
  • How did the students respond?

To be included, please complete the word template and email it to SUN at sun-group@bristol.ac.uk. We are very happy to give guidance over the phone or via email (contact us link).
