Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy 2012-16

In this section


The Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy (LTAS) 2012-16 identifies our aims in the design, delivery and management of Goldsmiths programmes, highlighting our established areas of strength and new aspirations. It is a framework from which we can develop previous achievements, respond to national initiatives and embrace our evolving research culture.

Goldsmiths’ Mission is to offer a transformative experience, generating knowledge and stimulating self-discovery through creative, radical and intellectually rigorous thinking and practice.

The student learning experience is embedded in our Values: to encourage intellectual curiosity and individuality, to offer inspiring opportunities for personal and social development (including the life skills of employable and enterprising graduates) and to ensure a responsive and collaborative learning environment that nurtures talent.

By maximising the interactions between teaching and research we can continue to cultivate a unique and creative approach to all our subjects, that builds on our diverse strengths through interdisciplinary imagination.

Our graduates should be equipped with the skills, knowledge and understandings that prepare for careers and life. We are committed to a continuing relationship with our graduates, through active engagement and support. Our students leave Goldsmiths as part of a global network of fellow graduates, tutors, professional colleagues and employers with whom they have engaged during their studies.

There are 7 Strategic Aims in the LTAS 2012-16.
