THEME 1 BUILDING ON OUR ACHIEVEMENTS To build upon the progress made under the previous strategic plan, we will continue to prioritise our research and teaching missions, contribute to our communities and value our staff, students and alumni. 1.1 OUR CORE MISSIONS: RESEARCH AND TEACHING Pioneering & Connected successfully directed our strategic development from 2011 to 2015. It was clear that the priorities in Pioneering & Connected resonated deeply with our staff and students, particularly in terms of the focus they placed on the core activities of research and teaching. 24 We will continue to strengthen our research and teaching missions by: (i) ensuring excellence in research; (ii) fully implementing Engaged Learning, the University’s teaching, learning and assessment strategy; (iii) strengthening our undergraduate programme offerings; (iv) increasing the number of postgraduate taught and doctoral enrolments; and (v) embedding technology-enhanced learning across our curricula.
