The Teacher Fellow Network brings together individuals drawn from across the University who have been identified for their excellent practice in learning and teaching.
They have a variety of responsibilities, which include:
The Teacher Fellow Network, which meets approximately every six weeks, includes National Teaching Fellows and Teacher Fellows with particular interests in, and responsibilities for, a range of learning, teaching and assessment initiatives. Current initiatives include: refocusing of the undergraduate curriculum; Course Development materials and resources to support staff across the university; development of a set of key graduate attributes (digital literacy, global outlook, employability).
Become a Teacher Fellow - being a Teacher Fellow is fun and a good career move. The Teacher Fellow Network here at Leeds Metropolitan University is well-established and has been running for 12 years. Teacher Fellowships are awarded for personal excellence in learning, teaching and assessment, and the role involves Faculty, cross-Faculty and University duties. Teacher Fellows are members of their Faculty's learning and teaching group or quality enhancement committee for the three years of their Fellowship. They form an important source of expertise in the refocusing of the undergraduate curriculum.
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) recognises and rewards excellent learning and teaching. It is open to all higher education institutions in England, Northern Ireland and, since Autumn 2010, Wales. The scheme is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, and the Department for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland. Up to 55 awards of £10,000 are made to recognise individual excellence. The award is intended for Fellows' professional development in teaching and learning or aspects of pedagogy.
