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.
As a community of practice, TIPS provides a space for collaborative learning to all teaching-related staff at Leeds. Find peer support, advice and ideas for your teaching practice on our MS Teams space by joining the Community.
TIPS also runs workshops and events as well as the TIPS Blog, a collection of practice-sharing articles written by members of staff. Each article outlines a teaching intervention, design rationale, and impact evaluation strategy, and suggests how these could be used and adapted by others. It is a perfect first step into publishing about your teaching and scholarship practice.
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.
