Edge Hill University is committed to teaching and learning of the highest possible quality. This is at the core of our values and substantially underpins our reputation. This is complementary to cognate discipline knowledge and research from practice within professions and constitutes the research teaching nexus. Research activity is thus inextricably linked to excellent teaching and to deep levels of student engagement. Teaching excellence will be achieved through rich development experiences, research, reward and recognition, and opportunities for professional accreditation and qualification.
