The Salford Community for Excellence in Education Advisory Group was created in summer 2018 in response the University Strategy, the Salford Curriculum Plus initiative, the Research and Knowledge Exchange Strategy and the development of a new Academic Careers Framework.
Members of the Advisory Group have expertise in and/or a passion for educational excellence. We have a vision to foster an institution-wide ethos for research-informed teaching practice which will inspire the University of Salford’s academic community and cultivate excellence in teaching and learning. Our activities will include:
- Providing a scholarship fund to support educational projects
- Disseminating best practice and fostering networking opportunities, e.g. delivering an annual conference where staff can share their ideas
- Working in collaboration with other University services to support staff development, coaching and mentoring
- Advising programme teams on specific teaching and learning practices
The group is led by Professor Jackie Leigh from the School of Health and Society. Members come from a number of schools and professional services because we thrive on inter-disciplinarity. Membership is open to anyone who is passionate about educational excellence and research. Please contact Jackie if you feel you would like to join the Advisory Group. Commitments will include one 2 hour meeting per month as well as any actions arising from the meeting.
