Learning and Teaching Support Network

The LTSN has been established by the UK higher education funding bodies to promote high quality learning and teaching in all subject disciplines in higher education. The network supports the sharing of innovation and good practices in learning and teaching including the use, where appropriate, of communications and information technology.

The network consists of:

  • 24 subject centres;
  • a Generic Centre (GC) and a Technologies Centre; and
  • a program director and coordinator.
  • Many of the new subject centres build on existing Computers in Teaching Initiative (CTI) Centres and involve learning and teaching support networks created by other funding council initiatives, such as the Fund for the Development of Teaching and Learning (FDTL). The new centres are the main points of contact within subject communities for information and advice on good practices and innovations in learning, teaching and assessment, and will provide support for the many networks which already exist.

    The GC provides strategic advice to the sector on generic learning and teaching issues, disseminates good practice in the development and deployment of new methods and new technologies, and acts as a knowledge broker for innovation in learning and teaching.
