Welcome to our project


Welcome to our HEFCE project ‘Improving learning and teaching through collaborative observation’. This was an 18-month project (November 2016 – April 2018) funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England that took place in the Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences (HELS) at Birmingham City University (BCU). The project involved 5 case studies from different subject areas across the faculty, each case study included 2 members of academic staff and 2 students for each observation cycle.

This website is a ‘live’ site that will be updated regularly on an ongoing basis throughout the duration of the project. Thus what you currently see is still very much a work in progress.
