An Evolving Journey – transitions of the teaching fellow

Abstract

The teaching and learning journey is a disparate and challenging path to follow, distinct in so many ways from that of a traditional academic career profile. Conventional academic staff profiles are often heavily research-based with a bit of teaching on the side, therefore making the main criteria of academic career progression success in research with less consideration for teaching, learning and student engagement. This is at odds with the funding model of most universities, were on average, 80% or more of university turnover is generated from students attending classes and paying fees. Over recent years there has been a shift in this traditional paradigm, to develop a new breed of teaching-focussed academic staff member – the Teaching Fellow.

This interactive workshop will be hosted by two members of staff who have made the transition from a purely research-based career profile to one that is immersed in the world of teaching and learning.
