I am responsible for the overall project management of the Lincoln Academy of Learning and Teaching (LALT). LALT is a supported and enabling space to allow staff to work together and share good practice around learning and teaching. It has a small staff of administrative and project experts to help with the organisation and capturing of events and other activities. It has a seedcorn budget for the support of innovation by staff and students in learning and teaching. It is intended to work synergistically with the aims of the Strategic Plan to ensure that learning and teaching in the University of Lincoln is undertaken at the highest national standards.
The work of the Academy will vary with time but may comprise support for action learning sets, HEA fellowship administration, support for staff who wish to focus on a teaching-excellence career path, support for staff new to teaching, support for staff taking on new roles or new types of teaching. It may include the provision of a conference, pop-up events, internally or externally sourced lectures, seminars and workshops in learning and teaching, subject specific events.
