Job Description

This role is open to current employees at the University of Leeds only.

Are you interested in fulfilling a project exploring the pedagogy of digital assessment?

We are inviting applications for a commissioned LITE Fellowship to join the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE). LITE embodies the University’s commitment to excellence and innovation in education through its investment in a community of Fellows, giving colleagues the opportunity to develop and implement projects and establish a culture of high-quality teaching innovation, scholarship and leadership. 

This Fellowship will provide the pedagogical underpinnings to support the Digital Assessment at Leeds project. One key element of the new Assessment Strategy is that all assessment will be digital by default. However, it is essential that we understand the pedagogical implications of this strategy by taking a rigorous and research-informed approach. 

As well as carrying out your project, you will be expected to contribute to LITE’s scholarly community, provide content towards the digital and external-facing profiles, and act as an ambassador at internal and external events. You will evaluate and disseminate the impact of your project internally through research progress showcases and externally to develop the practice, pedagogy and reputation of student education at the University. 

If you are interested in applying and would like to discuss the fellowship further, please contact:
