We are aware many of you are planning to apply for promotion at some point, or support others to get promoted on teaching and learning achievements. Following the very positive feedback from previous workshops, two further WIHEA workshops will take place in November. Each session will include several WIHEA Fellows/Alumni, who will share their stories and give their observations of what may be key to making a successful application to ‘the next stage’ of academic recognition. After recounting their own experiences, they will be happy to answer questions.
Both workshops will be chaired by Dr Letizia Gramaglia, Academic Director of WIHEA and Head of Academic Development Centre. There will be some time after the talks to discuss the practicalities and experiences further and Dr Gramaglia will also be able to answer questions or relate discussions to the new criteria, as she was part of the group that rewrote the academic promotion criteria, on the basis of the work the Learning Circle on Teaching Reward and Recognition had done to inform the new criteria.
Please see below for further information on both WIHEA sessions.
We have also joined up with WIE who are running a separate session directly before each WIHEA session, which will focus more specifically on the impact, outreach and engagement criteria which is often one of the most difficult sections to write. WIHEA Fellows and Alumni are invited to attend. Find out more using the links provided.
