What is ‘Get on and write’?
This series of sessions is for any UCL library staff working towards their HEA Fellowship, or anyone interested in doing so. Each session will give you some protected time where you can focus on getting some work done towards your application whilst also getting some support from peers. It’s an opportunity to bounce ideas off colleagues, discuss what you might include in your application and find out more about HEA Fellowship. Angela Young, Head of Library Skills, will be there to provide support from the perspective of someone who has been through the process already. There will be samples of successful applications from Library Services colleagues for you to look at. Every session is open to any library staff interested in applying for fellowship or who are at any stage in the application process. Sessions are in Room 417 in the Science Library on the following dates:
- Thu 7 Nov 2019, 10.30-12.30
- Mon 2 Dec 2019, 10.00-12.00
- Tues 14 Jan 2020, 10.00-12.00
- Wed 12 Feb 2020, 11.00-13.00
- Tues 17 March 2020, 14.00-16.00
Come to as many dates as you like, and if you cannot make a whole session then it’s fine to turn up for part of it.
What is HEA fellowship?
If you don’t know much about HEA fellowship, it’s a nationally recognised award which gives you formal recognition for your commitment to professionalism in supporting learning and teaching in higher education? The UCL Arena Open programme, which is free to UCL staff, provides a route to Higher Education Academy (HEA) fellowship and is open to all staff at UCL who teach or support students’ learning, regardless of role or job title, so it’s relevant to all sorts of roles within Library Services. In addition to gaining you post-nominals, the process of applying means you reflect on your teaching and learning support work and develop your skills, identify areas for your future development and enhance your support of students so contributing to the user experience.
If you would like to attend any of the dates, please contact Angela Young to secure your place.
