Teaching and Learning Resources

This page provides you with a summary of the teaching and learning resources available to you including links to guides, templates and useful information.


Following a review of student facing Courseware (Assignment Briefs, Project Briefs, Unit Guides and Moodle) changes have been made to these materials. The aim of these changes is to rationalise the courseware to ensure that they complement each other, avoid unnecessary repetition of information, enhance the students’ learning and provide tutors with a more user-friendly set of materials. The changes to the templates have ensured that they are now formatted as digitally accessible documents meaning they are accessible to everyone, including people who use assistive software.

To help you produce your courseware we have produced a series of Staff Guides. These guides provide step by step information on how to complete your courseware.

Staff Guide to: Unit Assignments and Project Briefs

The Unit Assignment has replaced the Assignment Brief – reflecting the different practices in LCC Schools.

The Project Brief template can be used by courses that require students to complete a series of projects to fulfil the Unit Assignment.
