10 years Centre for Teaching and Learning 2004-2014
The Centre for Teaching and Learning was founded in August 2002 (98th Meeting UCY Council) and became operational in September 2004.
The Centre's goal is the support/development of teaching/learning so that these correspond to current needs and to international and competitive standards of quality.
Statistical information on the Centre's activities:
The Courses' Evaluation Questionnaire is a necessary tool for obtaining feedback from students on the quality of teaching at UCY. Courses are evaluated at the end of each Semester.
The Senate in its 1st Meeting in 2010 (10th January 2010) approved the Centre's suggestion for the organisation of educational workshops for new teaching instructors within the framework of the orienation programme that is offered at the beginning of each academic year. Additionally, the Centre organises more advanced courses for experienced academics.
The Centre organises short courses in topics that help students in their programme studies. The courses are organised every semester and cover topics that students will find useful such as study skills, presentation skills, introducing Library services, introduction to specific software (eg SPSS) etc. These topics are not covered within the curriculum of the UCY programmes of study.
The Centre administers diagnostic questionnaires to first year students as decided by each Department.
