LITE Fellowship

Are you interested in fulfilling a project of teaching innovation, scholarship or pedagogy? Are you looking to set an aspirational standard of teaching excellence and pedagogic scholarship?  

LITE is inviting applications for Fellowships to join in 2019/20 academic year.
The Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) embodies the University’s commitment to excellence and innovation in education through its investment in a community of Fellows, giving colleagues the opportunity to develop and implement projects and establish a culture of high-quality teaching innovation, scholarship and leadership.

During your Fellowship, you will carry out a project based on innovative teaching, scholarship or pedagogy in alignment with the University’s strategy for student education and LITE’s research themes, priorities and objectives. 

As well as fulfilling the research and innovation project, you will be expected to contribute to LITE’s scholarly community, contribute content towards the digital and external-facing profiles and act as an ambassador at internal and external events. You will evaluate and disseminate your project outputs internally and externally to develop the practice, pedagogy and reputation of student education at the University. 

The Fellowships

The Fellowships are funded at the equivalent level of 20-80% (0.2-0.8 FTE) of one year of current salary. However, the Fellowship may be spread over 1-3 years and could be shared between several colleagues. The funding may be taken as secondment from current duties or a portion can be used to buy in, for example, a research assistant. Both academic and professional service staff are invited to apply. 

All projects must include a contribution from the student body in an advisory or partnership role. Applicants must be employed in a substantive role at the university during the period of the Fellowship.
