LITE Fellowship

The LITE Fellowship scheme funds secondments of 0.2 to 0.8 fte at current salary level. The Fellowship, however, may be spread over one to three years and can be shared between several colleagues.

Funding may be taken as secondment from current duties or a portion can be used to buy in, for example, a research assistant.

The closing date for applications for this latest round is Monday, November 4, 2019.

Both academic and professional staff are invited to apply but applicants must be employed in a substantive role at the university during the period of the Fellowship.

Successful candidates will be expected to carry out a project based on innovative teaching, scholarship or pedagogy in alignment with the University’s strategy for education.

Fellows  will also be expected to contribute to LITE’s scholarly community, contribute content towards the digital and external-facing profiles and act as an ambassador at internal and external events.

Fellows will evaluate and disseminate their project outputs internally and externally to develop the practice, pedagogy and reputation of student education at the University.

Hot desk space in 18 Beech Grove Terrace is be available, with appropriate equipment and meeting spaces, and an allocation of up to £8k will be available to support projects, for example, by paying student interns, events, materials , travel and subsistence, conference attendance, dissemination activities and equipment.

The funding should be justified in your application and, as a guide, we expect to award approximately £1,000 for each 0.1 fte of secondment.

Applicants, or at least one of a team, must have fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, now Advance HE.
