The Learning and Teaching Support Network (LTSN) was an initiative of the United Kingdom higher education bodies to promote high quality learning and teaching in all subject disciplines in higher education. It was intended to support the sharing of innovation and good practices in learning and teaching including the use, where appropriate, of communications and information technology. It operated through a set of 24 centres, specific to different subjects such as Engineering or English, so that good practice appropriate to that subject could be gathered and disseminated, and building up a network of practitioners.[1]

In May 2004 the LTSN merged with the Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILTHE) and the TQEF National Co-ordination Team (NCT) to form the Higher Education Academy. The Subject Centres continued, but were closed in 2011.[2]
