Teaching Enhancement Project leader

Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence

Teaching Enhancement Project leader

The use and impact of Collaborative Lecture Theatres

(0.2 FTE Secondment, 1 year fixed-term)
The Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence signals the University’s commitment to excellence and innovation in education through its investment in a community of Excellence & Innovation Fellows and Teaching Enhancement Project leaders. This gives academic and professional staff the opportunity to undertake projects to enhance our culture of high quality teaching innovation, scholarship and leadership.
This secondment is to undertake research to evaluate the impact of the pilot project which has refurbished three traditional tiered lecture theatres to provide innovative digitally enabled collaborative learning spaces.  These rooms will be used for the first time in Semester 1, 2016/17 and this evaluation will help to understand their impact and potential for delivering high quality student education.  As such, this project provides a major opportunity to shape the provision of learning spaces across the campus.

Role Description

This secondment will join the growing team of Excellence & Innovation Fellows and Teaching Enhancement Project Leaders in the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence.  It will be a twelve month 0.2fte secondment, starting in September 2017, with a commitment to deliver outputs beyond that date if the research indicates that is necessary.

As well as fulfilling the research project as outlined on the attached document, you 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 an ambassador at internal and external events.  As a TEP leader you will also be expected to disseminate the project findings internally and externally to develop the practice, pedagogy and reputation of student education at the University of Leeds.

It is anticipated that the role of TEP leader will develop and deliver projects which will enable them to develop their leadership role in student education in their school, unit or service.
