EVENT: Student education leadership, career development and opportunities

  • Date:
  • Time: 15:30 to 17:00
  • Venue:: Edward Boyle library, University of Leeds

EXPLORING the career development and importance of leadership in student education will be the focus of a new workshop.

The event will provide academics and professional service staff at different levels of fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) across the University, the chance to share and discuss best practice around student education leadership, development, recognition and reward in higher education.

Several colleagues from a Principal Fellows of the Higher Education Academy network regional meeting – to be held earlier in the day – will join the workshop to share their experiences and advice.

Dr Raphael Hallett, Director at the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE), which is hosting the event alongside the University’s Organisational Development & Professional Learning team, will chair the event.

Organiser, Dr Kelvin Tapley, who is an Innovation and Excellence Fellow at LITE says: “This workshop is aimed at University staff who are either at Principal or Senior HEA level or who are intent on applying for that level of accreditation. It will offer the opportunity for colleagues to share effective practice and case studies from institutions and individuals. There will also be discussion of opportunities and of issues and how to overcome such challenges as leaders in student education.”

“In particular, it is expected that the audience will be interested in hearing about the benefits of being part of a student education leadership for the PHFEA and SFHEA network, and for us to share ideas for developing the potential impact of such communities.”
