What is the Teaching and Learning Committee (TLC)?

TLC provides advice and recommendations to the Head of School and School Executive Committee for the development and maintenance of strategies for excellence in all aspects of teaching and learning in the School. The committee consists of academic and general staff representatives as well as undergraduate and postgraduate student representation. There are 2 student representatives on TLC: one from undergraduate students and one from postgraduate students. Students will be selected by a Selection Committee after an Expression of Interest process. A Selection Committee made up of members of the Teaching and Learning Committee will consider all applications, and select the two student representatives based upon how well they can demonstrate their capacity to meet the expectations of the role below.
