Networks in Student Education
There are many networks that you can join that will provide you with the support and opportunity to share your experiences and practice. These are the details of some networks that exist across the University and beyond which are involved in student education. We would also encourage you to get involved with any useful networks that might exist in your local environment or are specific to your discipline.
TIPS stands for 'Teaching, Innovation, and Practice in Student Education' and it is a network for teaching and support staff with the aim of collecting and sharing examples of effective practice from across the University. It provides a forum for teaching staff at Leeds to share tips and tricks and to provide mutual support, by colleagues, for colleagues.
We also have the TIPS Blog, a collection of short articles written by colleagues, sharing examples of their teaching practice. Each article outlines a teaching intervention, explains the design rationale, evaluates impact and suggests how these could be used and adapted by others.
Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE)
LITE promotes innovation and excellence in teaching, through support for projects and networks. Look out for workshops disseminating outcomes of their work, as well as the annual Student Education Conference (SEC).
Directors of Student Education Network
An informal network that regularly brings together Directors of Student Education (DSEs) from across campus. The DSEs have a dual Faculty and School role and are directly responsible to the Faculty, through the Pro-Dean for Student Education, for the quality assurance, standards and quality enhancement of the School's learning and teaching provision. For DSEs who want to enquire about the network, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
