ACU’s approach to teaching and learning is founded on distinctive, inclusive, dynamic, and student-centred education.
Guided by our Mission, education innovation at ACU facilitates student-centred, evidence-based teaching practices to enable high-quality, engaged learning experiences.
The Centre for Education and Innovation (CEI) is an integral link between directorates, schools, and faculties, providing a centralised support service for all learning and teaching processes and resources.
The Centre for Education and Innovation is a team of dedicated academic and professional staff able to facilitate and support learning and teaching across the University.
CEI works in partnership with directorates, schools, and faculties to provide resources to academic and professional staff, enabling a high-quality student learning experience. The education innovation website resources provide just in time support across four key areas, supporting the ACU Education Strategy.
