About Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE)

LITE promotes and supports innovation and excellence in teaching and disseminates outcomes for impact on student learning. We continue to enhance the reputation of LITE at the University of Leeds and beyond.

What we do

LITE supports colleagues across the University in all aspects of pedagogic research and scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) activity. If you would like to discuss your SoTL activity and how we can support it then email us at

We facilitate LITE fellowships, giving colleagues across the university the opportunity to carry out SoTL activity alongside their current role. Find out more on our fellowship page. We also deliver the Student Education Conference and provide opportunities for disseminating research through working with colleagues to deliver workshops, seminars, podcasts and blogs that present research and innovation. Find out more about the upcoming activity and catch-up on sessions you might have missed in theĀ events section of this site.
