Description

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 dissemination.

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.
