Teaching & Learning Principles/ Policies
The University of Otago Teaching and Learning Action Plan – Interim Plan 2011-2012
This Interim Plan replaces the old University of Otago Teaching and Learning Plan (2005-2010). It includes an updated Otago Graduate Profile, guiding principles for teaching and learning, and four goals with associated strategies. Familiarity with this document is essential for teachers at Otago. Two documents underpin this Plan: Guidelines for Learning at Otago (for students) and Guidelines for Teaching at Otago (for staff). The Guidelines documents should be read in conjunction with this Teaching and Learning Action Plan.
