LEARNING INNOVATION FOR TOMORROW
Learning Innovation for Tomorrow is the University’s professional support programme to bring transformative, futures-oriented learning into the curriculum, co-curriculum and education support.
LIFT offers funding, tools and guidance for new curriculum and learning initiatives across the University . It is led by the Sustainability Team, with support from the Academic Development Unit and RCE Severn, our partnership platform in Education for Sustainability.
LIFT is grounded in principles associated with Education for Sustainability, to support new innovations in learning that will help our graduates become more than specialists trained in one discipline, but to think and act in a broader professional and societal context.
The underpinning pedagogical principles of LIFT and the projects it funds are:
- Futures thinking
- Systems thinking
- Critically reflective practice
- Decolonised learning
- Stakeholder engagement
- Learner empowerment
