Teaching and Learning Activities (TLA's)

Teaching and Learning Activity These are simply any activity which stimulates, encourages or facilitates learning of one or more intended learning outcomes. The emphasis is on the word activity and it is important to ensure that the TLA is appropriate for the intended learning outcome and any subsequent assessment tasks-see Constructive Alignment section. Therefore, TLA's should be specifically aimed at activating the action verbs used in the ILO's. They can be as diverse as lectures, field trips, role play, internships, exchanges, discussions etc. The only limits are your imagination and creativity!
