New Recognition of Teaching for Researchers (ROTOR) pilot

The Centre for Academic Practice and Graduate School are pleased to announce the pilot of a new scheme – Recognition of Teaching for Researchers (ROTOR).  This scheme will support postgraduate research students and research staff to assemble an application for the award of Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA), which is recognised across the UK Higher Education sector.

The scheme is to be initially offered as a pilot, with limited places and a competitive application process.  Researchers wishing to take part should have undertaken one of the “Teaching Skills” or “Essential Teaching Skills” courses run by the Graduate School, and should also be taking part in some sort of teaching activity in the coming academic year.

The scheme will consist of seven compulsory workshops, which will take place throughout the academic year, including an introduction to the scheme and a guidance section on how to apply for AFHEA recognition through the LUPE process.

To apply, please visit the ROTOR website  to read the further information and access the application form.  The closing date for applications is Friday 16th September, 2016.
