About

The University of Derby’s Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) is focused on teaching excellence and educational innovation. Led by Fiona Shelton the Centre is part of the Academic and Student Experience Portfolio under the direction of Professor Malcolm Todd Provost (Academic). At the heart of the Centre is a commitment to high-quality learning and teaching which promotes student engagement and success.

We work collaboratively with staff and students across the University to ensure excellence in all aspects of learning, teaching, assessment and digital practice. Our innovative, research-informed approach places us at the cutting edge of academic and scholarly practice. This ensures a transformational experience for every student and supports our Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

The purpose of our blog is to share the Centre’s practice and innovation both internally and with the wider sector. CELT also hosts the University’s Ideas Factory and Create sites.
