Welcome to the Centre for Learning and Teaching!

The Centre for Learning and Teaching (CfLAT) aims to enhance all facets of the student learning experience through its dual academic and service role within Auckland University of Technology (AUT). This is undertaken through supporting staff in their teaching practices (including professional staff working in a learning support/advisory/administrative role) and developing staff capability for innovation in response to the ‘changing world’ of learning. The overall kaupapa is one of enabling effective professional practice for advanced education, aligned with the key strategic objective of creating inspirational learning experiences, and based on AUT’s core values of aroha (compassion), tika (integrity), and pono (respect).
