LITE Transformation Fellowships

The new LITE Transformation Fellowships are the result of a collaboration between Leeds University Business School  and the School of Law.

The project, initiated by Cathy Myles Pro Dean for Student Education at the Business School, aims to radically transform the teaching across a wide range of courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Module leaders of ‘flagship’ modules have been appointed as LITE Transformation Fellows. The redesigning of modules also offers an excellent opportunity to undertake pedagogic research to explore how new approaches to the delivery of teaching impacts on the student learning experience. Transformation Fellows will be presenting their findings as their projects evolve.

This is a two year project for the team of over 30 academics and digital enhancement and innovation experts and forms part of the much wider expansion programme of the Western Campus at Leeds. – Peter Hughes, Director of Teaching Enhancement and Catherine Wilkinson, Enhancement and Innovation Manager, will be jointly responsible for delivering the project. New facilities and approaches to teaching will truly enhance the staff and student experience in learning and teaching at Leeds.
