Abstract

In April 2009 the teaching team on Liverpool Hope University’s Level C English Literature module Exploring Genres submitted an application for the Rector’s Teaching Excellence Award, which is awarded once a year by the university. The following paper details the various pedagogical methodologies and practices which informed that application, and which the team employed in order to facilitate an effective balance between learning and teaching. The evidence for the strengths of Exploring Genres’ exploration of the learning and teaching possibilities was summed up by a Network student who in an email written at the end of the first semester noted: “I am happy, worried and tired.” Below we will unpick why this quotation is representative of the student experience of English Literature at Level C.
