The Faculty has four places on each of the following forthcoming ‘Humanities New Academics Programme’ sessions for Research Staff who are currently involved in delivering teaching. These sessions are discussion-based and therefore only appropriate for Research Staff who have a reasonable amount of teaching experience, or who currently have a substantial teaching load.
Integrating Teaching and Research – January 13th, 09.30 – 11.00, Kanaris Lecture Theatre
Academic Administration – January 13th, 11.15 – 12.45, Kanaris Lecture Theatre
Teaching Practice in Different Environments – January 13th, 13.45 – 17.00, 1.103 MBS West
Basic Introduction to University Funding – January 14th, 10.00 – 11.00, Kanaris Lecture Theatre.
For more information on any of these sessions, go to: http://www.humanities.manchester.ac.uk/tandl/hnap/units/index.html
The places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis – if you would like one of the places, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, telling me which session(s) you’d like to attend.
I have also been working with the co-ordinators of the HNAP to devise a policy which allows Humanities Research Staff with a significant teaching load access to the New Academics Programme (since there is currently no equivalent teaching development programme solely for Research Staff). The co-ordinators of the programme have agreed that up to 4 Research Staff who teach regularly can undertake some (mainly the teaching-related) units of the programme up to a maximum of 5 units per person per year. This is to ensure that a number of Research staff are able to take advantage of the limited number of places which HNAP is able to offer to those who are not currently on academic contracts.
Research Staff who subsequently wish to apply for Higher Education Academy Fellowship (or Associate Fellowship) may then make an ‘individual’ application for recognition with support from myself (and by attending the ‘Applying for HEA Fellowship’ seminar which forms part of the Research Staff Development Programme).
