The Higher Education Academy still has places available on the next of its highly regarded Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching (LTLT) programmes. The programme is aimed at those with an interest in curriculum design and the transformation of learning and teaching within their institutions, faculties and departments.
The deadline for applicants is rapidly approaching, on Friday 30 September, anyone interested in taking part in the programme - designed to enhance the skills, approaches and insights needed to lead course and programme teams through processes of transformation and innovation - should apply quickly to avoid disappointment.
Developed by the HEA in collaboration with the Leadership Foundation (LFHE), typical attendees have included course directors, programme leaders, assistant heads of department, taught course directors, departmental directors of teaching and associate deans.
Split into three modules over the course of three months, LTLT is led by HEA consultant Steve Outram and Doug Parkin of the LFHE, both widely experienced in organisational change who have delivered the programme for the past four years, attracting excellent feedback in the process.
“The LTLT’s audience draws largely, but not exclusively, from those who have got teaching and learning change responsibilities, such as associate deans, alongside people with course or programme director experience,” says Steve Outram. “We attract a lot of people with responsibilities for change and who want support, particularly when institutions have decided to change radically. We also attract people who have been promoted, or are new, to being a course director and who want to find out more.”
“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,” says previous programme participant James Kelly, Senior Tutor at Queens’ College, Cambridge. “This is the most exciting, and exacting, leadership course I have ever undertaken.”
