Institute Director Professor Tina Overton recaps on a strong year for the LITE Community and looks forward to #SEC2020.
As we approach the end of a busy semester we hope that colleagues take the opportunity to recharge their education batteries before the start of semester 2.
There is no better way to achieve this than attending the Student Education Conference on January 6 and 7.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Student Success’, in its many forms.
We have a packed programme for you with keynotes, 10 minute orals, three minute snap sessions, workshops and exhibits.
This is apart of our attempt to make the conference more sustainable so registration will involve just collecting a badge.
Don’t expect paper programmes or the usual conference freebies but we will still, of course, be providing delicious refreshments throughout the two days.
The Student Education Conference is just one of many activities that have kept LITE colleagues busy this semester.
We have also launched a series of Getting Started in Pedagogic Research workshops following the high demand for our intensive workshops last session.
You may also have noticed our growing number of Networks, lead by academic and professional colleagues and set up to meet needs within our community.
You can find details of successful projects here.
We also launched the new LITE Transferring Innovation Fund which provides modest funding for colleagues to work together to share innovative teaching or resources.
In the new year watch out for our relaunched LITE mentoring scheme which will have a focus on support for pedagogic research.
We will also have a focus on supporting and networking our affiliated networks.
LITE exists to support the education community at the University of Leeds and our programme of work is constantly evolving to meet your needs.
But do get involved.
Merry Christmas and and happy new year from the team at LITE.
