LITE seeks next generation of excellence and innovation leaders

Internal only: these secondment opportunities are open to University of Leeds employees only

The Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) is recruiting the next cohort of Excellence and Innovation Fellows and Teaching Enhancement Project (TEP) Leaders to join its growing community in 2019.

Both roles focus on high quality teaching innovation, scholarship and leadership and further rubber stamp both the Institute and the University of Leeds commitment to and investment in award winning student education.

The Institute is looking to recruit up to six full time Excellence and Innovation Fellows through a full year secondment starting in 2019. It is also seeking up to 10 TEP leaders, working on a 0.2 FTE secondment for a year from January 2019.

Kelvin N. Tapley, LITE (interim) Director, said: “It has been an exciting two years for the Institute. In this time we’ve gone from strength to strength and our Excellence and Innovation Fellows and Teaching Enhancement Project Leaders have been at the heart of our success.

LITE’s reputation as a sector leading community of research and innovation is growing fast, both nationally and internationally, and we want our next cohort of fellows and TEP leaders to be the torch bearers for teaching innovation and scholarship across the University of Leeds and beyond.

“Both these roles are fantastic opportunities that further cement the University’s commitment to excellence and innovation in education.”
