LITE Director’s blog

Welcome to the first edition of our relaunched Student Education Bulletin (SEB), now delivered to you online.

The relaunched SEB is just one of a number of initiatives that aim to make LITE even more relevant to colleagues involved in Student Education at the University of Leeds.

More to do

It was clear to me when I joined LITE in February that it was a very successful unit delivering very relevant outcomes for the institution through its Innovation and Excellence Fellows and Teaching Enhancement Project Leaders and an excellent programme of events.

These Fellows and project leaders form a vibrant, talented community who we can draw on for their excellent practice and experience.

But we can do more to nurture and support effective practice and innovation in education here at Leeds.

Increase opportunity

My vision is that we provide opportunities for colleagues at all stages of their careers in education, from being newly appointed through to experienced and world leading.

So you will see new opportunities to get engaged with LITE being promoted over the next few weeks.

New offers

Many of you will have already seen the new Student Education Catalyst fund, designed to kick start small education projects.

You can read about the relaunched LITE Fellowship programme in this edition of SEB, which now offers flexible options for colleagues interested in applying for secondment to LITE to pursue a substantial project.

Watch out also for the new Journal Club and the Getting Started in Pedagogic Research workshop which is designed for those with limited experience in pedagogic research.

As we expand our offerings, I look forward to meeting many more colleagues and am always keen to hear where you think the gaps are in the provision of support for education that LITE could address.
