The Teaching and Learning Institute (TLI) is a newly established autonomous unit within the University whose overarching goal is to foster a culture of excellence in university teaching and learning. The Institute’s main function is to offer university-wide courses that include Communication Skills, Statistics and Heritage Studies. The first two courses are already being offered to all students at different levels of study. The other role of the Institute is to foster a culture of excellence in University teaching and learning through seminars for all staff that are aimed at setting the parameters for ensuring quality teaching, learning and the student experience at MUAST. The future plans of the Institute are to offer postgraduate diploma programmes in education and higher education for teachers and university and tertiary lecturers, respectively. The purpose of these two programmes will be to advance and broaden the capabilities of teachers and higher and tertiary education lecturers in teaching and learning. The Institute will collaborate with all faculties and units across the university in order to fulfil its vision and mission as well as that of the University.
