LITE Accelerator Fellowship These secondment opportunities are open to University of Leeds employees


Salary: 0.2 to 0.8 FTE secondment at current grade

This role will be based on the university campus, with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are also open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

Are you interested in fulfilling a project on teaching innovation, scholarship or pedagogy? Are you looking to set an aspirational standard of teaching excellence and pedagogic scholarship?

We are inviting applications for LITE Fellowships to join the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE).

LITE embodies the University's commitment to excellence and innovation in education through its investment in a community of fellows, giving colleagues the opportunity to develop and implement projects and establish a culture of high-quality teaching innovation, scholarship and leadership.

During your fellowship, you will carry out a project that explores an aspect of the student education experience that will support the delivery of the University's strategy for student education. It is envisaged that proposals will demonstrate transformation and innovations in education in the short/medium term with evaluation and iterations built into the project plan.

Proposals are invited for LITE Accelerator Fellowships that support school and/or faculty-based initiatives that will support the University of Leeds student education priorities. We particularly welcome proposals related to assessment design or active learning. However, proposals that reflect new, emerging ideas that would benefit any student group at Leeds (taught students and postgraduate researchers) are also welcomed.

As well as carrying out your project, you will be expected to contribute to LITE's scholarly community, provide content for digital and external-facing platforms, act as an ambassador at internal and external events and support colleagues in their scholarship and pedagogic research.

You will evaluate and disseminate the impact of your project internally through research progress showcases and externally to develop the practice, pedagogy and reputation of student education at the university.
