Advance HE is pleased to announce that the Spring 2019 cohort of Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching (LTLT), will work with a team from the University of Birmingham. A key part of the programme is the use of real-life case studies where participants from other institutions can share their expertise and ideas to help develop a project taking place at the host institution.
Professor Nicola Wilkin, Director of Education, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Birmingham said: “As an LTLT alumna, the benefits from the networking, and the opportunity to problem solve education challenges with colleagues from outside my discipline and institution was very valuable, so I’m looking forward to the opportunity of sharing our ‘Summer Spinout’ internship model during the programme.
“Summer Spinout enables us to create quality, at scale, online education materials in partnership with students and for their peers, and we're looking forward to further developing it during the programme with the help of colleagues from other institutions."
Doug Parkin, director of the Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching programme said: “This unique programme brings together contemporary ideas on leadership, transformational change, learning and teaching, and engagement in higher education into a single coherent offering, and the process of collaborative enquiry that is the basis for the live case study models perfectly the powerful learning that can arise from skilfully combining these key areas.
This is very much a programme for our times.”
Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching enables participants to enhance the skills, approaches and insights needed to lead course and programme teams through processes of transformation and innovation. The programme has been developed for individuals with an interest in curriculum design and the transformation of learning and teaching within their institutions, faculties or departments.
Tracy Bell Reeves, director of programmes and events at Advance HE said: “Teaching and learning is under the spotlight like never before with subject level TEF, debate over value for money and the impact of AI on learning, all on the agenda.
Innovative and impactful leadership in this space is critical and is exactly what this programme delivers. Stimulating, insightful and contextually current your leadership role will get a definite reboot.”
The next cohort of the Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching programme commences on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 May 2019. Applications close on Friday 10 May 2019.
