Call to join the RBL Network

A NETWORK which brings together those involved in final year dissertation modules at the University of Leeds has been set up by the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE).

The Research-based Learning Network or RBL Network for short, which is also open to those delivering final year projects or alternative research focused projects at both undergraduate and taught postgraduate level, aims to provide a forum to discuss and share ideas about the management and delivery of these modules.

And the first meeting for the group has been scheduled so members from across campus have the opportunity to network and chat. It will be held on Thursday, February 28, between 15:15 and 16:30 at Parkinson SR B.10. Refreshments will be served.

Professor Tina Overton, Director at LITE, said she hopes the group will bring together the diverse nature of research-based learning and teaching from across all disciplines at Leeds.

She said: “Research-based learning is at the heart of the Leeds Curriculum.

Many of our students are producing research that is having an impact beyond final grades and this is, in part, due to the support and guidance provided by dissertation supervisors and project leaders.

I am delighted that LITE is launching this network that will enable practitioners to come together and support each other through sharing good practice and discussing ideas.

The group will run a series of networking and discussion events and meetings throughout the year as well as an open discussion forum through the LITE Sharepoint site and a Yammer platform, called : RBL Network.
