The University of Leicester has been selected to promote good teaching practice across the country.

It has been chosen to host the archaeology strand of the Learning and Teaching Support Network’s Subject Centre for History, Classics and Archaeology.

The centre, funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, is one of 24 Subject Centres hosted by UK universities dedicated to the research, promotion and dissemination of good teaching practice across the sector.

The archaeology strand will be directed by Dr Annie Grant, Director of the University’s Educational Development and Support Centre, and will have a full time archaeology co-ordinator, Dr Michael Reynier. The staff will work closely with the School of Archaeological Studies and the University’s Teaching and Learning Unit.

Dr Grant said: “The University of Leicester is one of only a handful of institutions to have been awarded strands of two subject centres by HEFCE since it also hosts the IT strand of the Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences centre.”

Dr Reynier added: “The successful bid for the archaeology strand will further enhance the University’s growing reputation as an institution dedicated to pursuing teaching quality in Higher Education.”
