Two powerful research-based frameworks underpin the approach to teaching and learning. These frameworks apply across the range of specific teaching competences that comprise SP's Learning Roadmap.

Educational Development

The Department pursues pedagogical innovations and developments, translates new research findings into practical curriculum applications as well as spearheads initiatives identified by the Polytechnic. It provides consultancy services to academic schools/departments in curriculum development, improvement of teaching effectiveness and the development of teaching materials, both for the classroom and the online environment.

Digital Media Development

We have a full service, high quality professional video production unit that can help guide a staff or student from concept and script writing to shooting, editing and duplication. We can produce marketing, training, corporate, event, MTV and commercial videos. We also provide live web-cast and streaming video production.

Multimedia & E-Learning Development

The Department houses a video studio, audio recording room and also a training room specially equipped with remote-controlled video cameras for recording lectures and tutorials to enable video-counselling of new academic staff. Staff also explore and use audio, video, animation and graphics elements to assist the academic staff in the production of training and presentation materials, video packages, web-based streaming media, DVD and CD-ROM packages.
