The Teaching and Learning Champions project enhanced the capacity of middle and senior managers for leadership in digitally-engaged teaching and learning. It did so through the establishment of a Teaching and Learning Champions Forum for Senior Managers across four higher education institutions and the development of a Special Purpose Award in Mentoring of Leadership in Teaching and Learning. The Award was supported by the creation of bespoke digital resources aligned to the National Professional Development Framework and an online mentoring platform for academic and professional services managers.
