LITE Fellowship - Introduction to Pedagogic Research
Please note that this is a secondment opportunity - open to current
University of Leeds employees within Professional Services only
Are you employed within the Professional Services and interested in
fulfilling a project exploring the student learning and teaching experience?
Would you like support and guidance in delivering a successful project that
will inform your practice and that of your team?
We are inviting applications from colleagues within the Professional Services
to join the Introduction to Pedagogic Research Programme as a LITE Fellow
within 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.
LITE Fellowships for Professional Services will provide a fully supportive
programme to help colleagues new to research (or with limited experience)
deliver a project exploring an aspect of the student experience related to
learning and teaching from its initial idea phase through to impact and
Professional Service teams throughout the University provide a vital
contribution to the student experience and the opportunities to explore
enhancement interventions and activities are numerous. This programme applies
a broad interpretation of pedagogic research through including the influence
of the wider aspects of the student experience on a student's learning and
teaching experience. This scheme would provide the opportunity to generate
evidence that explores the value and potential of a range of activities such
as (but not limited to) student voice, co and/or extra-curricular activity,
community building, campus spaces, employability, mentoring and accommodation.
During your Fellowship, you will carry out a project based on an aspect of
your role/practice that contributes directly to the student experience and
will generate evidence to inform best practice.
