Leading transformation and innovation

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.

I learned a very great deal about investment by stakeholders, partnership with students, and the crucial importance of negotiation in relation to the curriculum, besides much else. This is the most exciting, and exacting, leadership course I have ever undertaken."

LTLT programme participant James Kelly, Senior Tutor at Queen’s College, Cambridge.

How is the programme delivered

LTLT is an open programme delivered in a cohort structure. The programme is split over one two-day residential module, two one-day modules and an action learning set, over four months.

Module 1: Getting started

Module One begins with an exploration of academic leadership and the skills needed to lead learning and teaching.

Module 2: Getting going 

Picking up the discussions, methods and techniques from the first module the group will develop the theme of ‘full-engagement. For those undertaking the full programme (all three modules plus action-learning), participants will be given the opportunity to start considering a work-based transformational initiative of their own to be carried out over subsequent months.

Module 3: Going forward

This module focuses primarily on supporting the progress and impact of the Transformation Pilots.

Action Learning Set

“Action Learning is a continuous process of learning and reflection that happens with the support of a group or ‘set’ of colleagues working with real problems with the aim of getting things done.”
Ian McGill and Liz Beaty, Action Learning: a guide, 2001

What are the programme outcomes

Participants will increase their practical and critical understanding of academic leadership and collaborative change in the context of teaching and learning. They will gain the confidence to engage with, influence and motivate colleagues with the intention of contributing towards new course development and delivery.

The programme offers institutions an opportunity to prepare and equip staff at times of radical transformation and change, support staff recently promoted to course director posts, and help them develop enhancement plans for teaching excellence. Plus, the action learning set will be an opportunity to start considering a work-based transformation pilot in the institution with support from other participants on the programme.
