About the Institute

The Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) is a community of research and innovation with the aim of establishing the University of Leeds as a sector leader in teaching practice and scholarship.

The Institute provides funding, time and support for current and future student education leaders to develop their profile at the University and to carry out research and innovation projects with internal and external impact.

We are embarking on an exciting journey to appoint and support a community of Excellence and Innovation fellows: four in the first year and then five each year. This will give internally appointed fellows the time to develop projects and establish a culture of high quality scholarship for external dissemination and publication. We will also attract high quality visiting fellows from an international pool of talent.
