CLIPP supports and encourages staff in making teaching decisions regarding technology-enhanced learning, as part of an informed approach towards curriculum design. For further details, see the design principles included in the Programme Approval guidelines

CLIPP convenes the Learning Technologies Management Group (LTMG) made up of representatives from all Schools, the Student Union and learning support areas across the University. For more information on the work of this group contact either Dr Sarah Hayes (Chair) or Caroline Smeeton (Secretary)

Part of the work of LTMG is to develop the Digital Learning Strategy, building on previous consultations for the draft Distance Learning Strategy. 

CLIPP academic team staff are currently working in liaison with colleagues from Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) on projects that include:
