A year to make a difference
The Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) is recruiting five Excellence and Innovation Fellows. These posts are internal only and these secondment opportunities are open only to University of Leeds employees. The Excellence and Innovation Fellows will be appointed to fulfil a project of teaching innovation, scholarship or pedagogy during their year’s secondment, managing the project in line with the Institute’s research themes, priorities and objectives. The Fellows will set an aspirational standard of teaching excellence and pedagogic scholarship that will energise the Institute’s progress and develop teaching practice within and beyond the Leeds Curriculum. As well as fulfilling the research and innovation project as outlined in their application, Fellows will be expected to contribute fully to the dynamism of the Institute’s scholarly community, contribute content towards the digital and external-facing profiles of the Institute and act as ambassadors at internal and external events. Fellows will be expected to disseminate their project findings and innovations externally to develop the practice, pedagogy and reputation of student education at the University of Leeds. It is anticipated that, over time, discipline or faculty-based centres for teaching innovation and scholarship will provide developmental contexts for aspirant Institute Fellows, and that successful Fellows will return to their home schools and units with the leadership qualities and momentum to establish or enhance these initiatives.
