Designing Learning, Teaching and Assessment (DeLTA) process


In an attempt to support SU lecturers with their teaching function, the Designing Learning, Teaching and Assessment (DeLTA) process was conceptualised and a resource compiled.  The title of the process is the acronym (DeLTA) but Delta is also the mathematical symbol for change and is represented by ∆. The purpose of the process can thus be summarised as a guide towards achieving change in T&L@SU.

​​​​The graphic below gives a summary of the complete DeLTA process.
