CeLT Members

TThe Centre for Learning and Teaching Research was founded in 2001 by the Department of Computer Science which guides, coordinates and supports the activities of the research group. Over the years, academic staff with a strong interest and expertise in educational research from the Psychology and Business Administration and Economics departments of CITY College, joined the research group and CeLT became interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in nature. The research group's intrinsic chemistry, unique dynamics and genuine collegiality create an intellectually stimulating climate and a lively research culture, that in turn drive novel, high-quality research on what all group members have a passion for: Learning and Teaching.
