The Centre for Higher Education Research and Practice (CHERP) facilitates the progression and implementation of Learning and Teaching priorities in collaboration with other key players within the institution.

In progressing its work, CHERP will draw mainly on existing resources but will create new configurations, groupings and networks, as appropriate, to ensure a focused, informed and co-ordinated approach in addressing themes and issues.

CHERP will keep colleagues informed of developments in Higher Education, nationally and internationally, creating opportunities for staff to engage with research and practice in a variety of contexts, and promoting developments across boundaries, whether within academic practice or involving collaboration with colleagues in areas of learning support.
