Doing More with Less?: A Case Study of Gaining Efficiencies through Alignment of SoTL and Strategic Planning for Learning and Teaching

Mark Schofield, Edge Hill University, UK

Abstract

In challenging economic times practices should be informed by research and SoTL, integrated into strategic planning. Such thinking informs this case study which comprises Edge Hill University’s approaches to efficiency and doing “more with less resource,” whilst managing associated risks. Elements include the SOLSTICE concept of learning design in interdisciplinary Technology Enhanced Learning teams; efficient harvesting of curriculum design approaches though “Learning Task Teams” and galvanizing developmental advice and guidance though an Excellence Fellowship Scheme.
