The Built Environments Learning + Teaching (BEL+T) group is unique in Australia, and a rarity in the world. BEL+T works with academics and students to research and support excellent built environments education. We focus on the opportunities that are opened for graduates, and for our built environments, by great learning experiences. BEL+T applies creative problem-solving and design-led approaches, evidence-based research methodologies, and project-focused consultancy to improve teaching quality and student engagement. Visit the BEL+T site to find events and opportunities; and also tools, guidance and resources for academics, new sessional teachers and built environment education researchers.
