    Abstract

    Welcome to the second edition of the University of Salford’s ‘Innovative Learning in Action’ (ILIA). The journal is published biannually and is intended to provide recognition for and to celebrate the good practice of staff who – across campus – strive to innovate in pursuit of the quality learning experience. The dissemination of good practice will provide positive encouragement to those considering new approaches to student learning and support and act as a springboard for collaboration, shared experience, mutual support and reflection within and across the faculties. The theme of this edition is ‘Enhancing Student Diversity, Progression and Achievement’, reflecting the University’s widely recognised strategic commitment to widen participation, and its expertise in curriculum innovation to meet the needs of our students. Contributors deal with a range of challenges to practitioners at key stages in the student life-cycle and offer highly reflective insights of relevance across the University. The journal therefore provides a valuable opportunity to share and learn from the experiences of colleagues.
