SECOND Getting Started in Pedagogic Research Workshop and Lunch added due to popular demand

  • Date:
  • Time : 12:30 to 16:30
  • Venue: Michael Sadler, LG 15, University of Leeds

DUE to popular demand LITE has added a second Getting Started in Pedagogic Research Workshop and Lunch.

The session, which will explore how to successfully start research into teaching and learning, booked up quickly the first time around with many left disappointed.

So to meet this demand, the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) has organised a follow up event as the latest in its growing community offer.

The Getting Started in Pedagogic Research Workshop and Lunch is open to all staff at the University of Leeds interested in carrying out pedagogic research.

It will also provide the opportunity for staff to hear about new funding opportunities to be announced by LITE.

The workshop is aimed at:

  • Staff who may have limited research experience but have an interest in the scholarship of teaching and learning and would like to develop their skills and expertise in this area.
  • Academic staff who may be confident in carrying out research in their own discipline but are unsure how to get started with pedagogic research; and,
  • staff who may have an idea about an intervention or a topic they would like to explore but are not sure how to get started with a strategy for researching and delivering the project.

Professor Tina Overton, Director at LITE, said:

“It was fantastic to see how popular our first workshop proved, there is obviously a strong desire for staff at Leeds to either learn more about how to get involved in pedagogical research or may be just to refresh current knowledge, either way the demand is clear.

‘This workshop will help staff to think about the research process as related to teaching and learning innovations, from crafting a research question, identifying research methodologies, thinking about ethics and validity, to planning for dissemination and publication.

“And I reiterate, we are particularly keen to encourage and support colleagues who, for whatever reason, have not previously thought about this area of work.

This workshop offers a great opportunity for staff to start their journey into pedagogical research or engage with a refresher session.

This is the latest announcement by LITE following on from the recent launch of the LITE Journal Club and the Research-based learning Network as part of the Institute’s expanding community.
