Learning, Teaching and Library

Nau mai ki te Whare Pūrākau | Learning, Teaching and Library (LTL). We support the University’s learning, teaching and research activities, providing resources, services and programmes to students, staff and alumni.

Just as Ivey Hall has stood at the centre of our physical campus for over 150 years, LTL connects and supports our whānau by providing a learning ecosystem that promotes excellence and success.

We strive to provide an inclusive, affordable, engaging, seamless and transformative learning experience. At the same time, we support the University's larger goal of providing a greater understanding of the relationships between land, food and ecosystems.

LTL is currently comprised of three teams: Library Services, Centre for Learning and Teaching, and Online Learning.

Library Services

Library Services operates the George Forbes Memorial Library. This team manages our collections, the daily operation of services within Ivey Hall and oversees the university's copyright compliance programme.

Centre for Learning and Teaching

The Centre for Learning and Teaching oversees the teaching and learning support and development programmes, including:

  • student academic skills
  • inclusive education services
  • careers and employment services
  • academic staff professional development
  • teaching excellence programmes.
Online Learning

Online Learning is tasked with developing the required courseware for the Lincoln Connected Initiative and supporting the online delivery of courses. The online learning team also includes the Akoraka | Learn support and administration as well as video production services to support some courses.

  • Providing a full and equitable set of student support services
