LITE Writing Retreat

Scholars with a passion for improving student education are being sought for a collaborative writing group.

Together we create mural August 2018

The Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) is keen to attract colleagues who are enthusiastic and committed to producing high quality scholarship to take part in a one-and-a-half-day writing retreat in January 2019.

This will build on a pre-retreat planning day on Tuesday 11 September 2018, which all successful applicants will be expected to attend.

Topics for writing will be determined by each group and will be supported through a series of structured activities across Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 January 2019.

The writing retreat will:

  • encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration in learning and teaching research and discourse
  • facilitate high-quality production outputs; and
  • increase capacity and competence in learning and teaching scholarship through supported writing and mentorship.

Kelvin Tapley, Interim Director of LITE, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to work in a collaborative writing group that will bring together participants from across campus and externally – with varying degrees of scholarly writing experience – to co-author articles on learning and teaching in areas of shared interest.

“We hope this retreat will create valuable time and space for colleagues to produce high-quality scholarship that will ultimately support further enhancements in student education.”

Places are limited to between 20 and 25 people, who will work in small teams. Each team will focus on a shared area of interest and produce a publication based on this discussion.

The application deadline for the LITE writing retreat is Wednesday 22 August 2018. Further details and how to apply can be found on the LITE webpages.

Please contact Aysha Divan for any initial enquiries.

This event will run in conjunction with the #SEC2019.
