Teaching Enhancement Project Leaders for LITE

The Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence is offering funding for ten, new year-long Teaching Enhancement Projects (TEPs) to support student education and teaching scholarship across campus.

Successful applicants will not only be offered £3k to develop their projects, but will also be seconded, each spending 0.2 FTE of their time with LITE, from January 2017. You can find more information here.

The TEPs complement the Institute’s prestigious Excellence and Innovation Fellowship scheme, which offer five, year-long secondments to LITE and one visiting fellowship. You can read about these secondments here.

“This is an exciting time for the Institute and these funded opportunities emphasise the University’s commitment to providing outstanding student education," comments Dr Raphael Hallett, Director of the Institute.

“These two schemes will not only enrich LITE’s community but will secure powerful outputs and evidence of inspirational curriculum design and teaching scholarship.

“We are now focused on building a vibrant community for the Institute and look forward to raising the visibility and impact of those who enhance teaching innovation and scholarship at Leeds. Our launch event on 26 October will broadcast these ambitions more widely.”

LITE’s new building sits in the middle of the campus at 18 Beech Grove Terrace, reflecting the central role it will play in bringing together teaching excellence and innovation at Leeds. 

Lydia Bleasdale Hill (School of Law), one of LITE’s current Fellows, comments “Having the time, space and funds to develop my student-focused research project, whilst also being part of an inclusive hub of people from across the University, is incredibly exciting. I'm looking forward to learning more from my colleagues, as well as to contributing to the evidence-based approach to student education at Leeds.”
