Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching (LTLT) enables participants to enhance the skills, approaches and insights needed to lead course and programme teams through processes of transformation and innovation. Split into three modules, it is aimed at those with an interest in curriculum design and the transformation of learning and teaching within their institutions, faculties and departments. The application deadline for this programme has now been extended to 18 January.
“Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching attracts a lot of people with responsibilities whose institutions have decided to change radically, and who want to support those changes. We also attract people who have been promoted, or are new, to being a course director and who want to find out more.” - Steve Outram - Director of the LTLT programme and Advance HE associate
The LTLT programme focuses on three key areas:
- Increasing your practical and critical understanding of academic leadership and collaborative change in the context of learning and teaching
- Giving you the confidence to engage with, influence and motivate colleagues with the intention of contributing towards new course development and delivery
- Encouraging you, together with other members of your team, to be more aware of your own strengths
- An opportunity to support and guide your staff at times of radical transformation and change
- Support staff recently promoted to course director positions
- Split into three modules held over the course of three months, so as to complement employer timetable and resources
- Investment in the continuing professional development of your staff
Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching (LTLT) enables participants to enhance the skills, approaches and insights needed to lead course and programme teams through processes of transformation and innovation.
During the programme participants can:
- share experiences of academic leadership in the specific context of learning and teaching;
- consider the nature and forms of pedagogical transformation and innovation, and what makes it work;
- understand what makes for success in collaborative change processes;
- explore ways of motivating and inspiring academic colleagues;
- learn from current good practice in engaging students in curriculum development;
- carry out a 'transformation pilot initiative' in their own institutional setting, with support from other participants on the programme.
LTLT has been developed for individuals with an interest in curriculum design and the transformation of learning and teaching within their institutions, faculties and departments. It is of particular value to course directors, programme leaders, assistant heads of department, taught course directors, departmental directors of teaching and associate deans (learning and teaching).
The LTLT programme is aligned to UKPSF standards and can be used as evidence towards Senior Fellowship.
