The Learning, Teaching and Assessment Network (LTAN) launched in 2019 and focuses on learning, teaching, assessment, feedback and a wide range of other pedagogical issues. Its primary aim is to highlight, discuss and share current issues, trends and debates in research supporting learning, teaching and assessment.

It is aimed towards anyone involved in or interested in these areas of research, including those with management and leadership roles and those new to the field. The network is intended to foster a new, international community to give focused attention to these areas, explicitly embedding criticality in its discussions and events.
It also seeks to promote new approaches and theoretical perspectives and offer an avenue to scale-up some practitioner research that we know is undertaken in ‘pockets’ (e.g. within departmental or institutional contexts) but is not necessarily joined up or cohesive. Issues and research topics that the network will address in its remit include, but are not limited to: learning, teaching, assessment, feedback, student partnership, curriculum, influence of technology on pedagogy, student transitions, academic support, methods of evaluating classroom practice.
Following its launch event in autumn 2019 this Network plans to host two to three events per year, and will also be present at the SRHE Annual Research Conference.
