Academic Practice Project Assistant

Are you passionate about student education? Are you looking for an opportunity to develop your career in academic practice? Do you have experience of planning and implementing projects or initiatives with a focus on making a difference?  

As a Project Assistant, you will work with colleagues in your team, academic leaders and student representatives to plan and deliver projects designed to enhance academic practice in learning, teaching and research. The projects and day to day work will be varied, and will evolve in keeping with the University and wider Higher Education landscape. The team’s current activities include: review of the University’s Continuing Professional Development Framework and the implications for our team’s provision; a focus on enhancing our work through the use of blended and online learning activities; developing and implementing a framework for evaluating the impact of our work; and identifying and supporting professional development needs arising from university wide initiatives including Portfolio Review, Internationalisation and Inclusivity. 

The Academic Practice Team provides development and learning designed to help staff be most effective in their teaching and their research. Our provision is shaped by local priorities, and is informed by national sector standards and best practice in learning, teaching and research development. We are part of the Organisational and Professional Development Department (OD&PL). This is an exciting time to join the OD&PL team at Leeds as we develop new approaches to academic practice and professional learning, spanning the breadth of academic roles and career pathways.
