Advanced Learning and Teaching Centre

The ALT Centre is the centre for evidence- and outcomes-based education at Brescia. What makes us ‘advanced’ is our focus on students’ entire educational experience: we encourage both excellence in teaching and Brescia’s delivery of high impact learning practices. We also provide space – both physical and otherwise – to facilitate learning. Through our scholarship in teaching and learning we aim to establish Brescia as a leader in student-centred, outcomes-based education.
