CASAP Review

By Sue Gill, Team Manager, Academic Practice Team, LTDS

As some of you will be aware we will be introducing a new scheme to replace CASAP from September 2019 for new starters.

The first point to make clear is that for anyone who is currently working their way through CASAP, you will be able to continue and complete your programme. We’ve been working hard to ensure that there is a transition period long enough to work for everyone. That includes those colleagues who are booked to begin LTES during this rest of this academic year, we’ll be running the second and third modules so you can complete as much as you need of the programme.

The replacement for CASAP currently has the working title of Newcastle Teaching Award 2. It is a structured scheme which will lead to Associate Fellowship or Fellowship recognition over a period of 2 years. It is intended that the normal probationary requirement would be achieving D2 via the scheme (replacing the existing Newcastle Teaching Award). Continue reading “CASAP Review”

CASAP Review: Share Your Views

LTDS has been asked by ULTSEC to consider what is needed to ensure Newcastle University staff are confident, informed teachers and supporters of learning, able to enthuse, encourage and inform their students.

We will be spending the next 2 months gathering views, ideas and suggestions from colleagues all across the university. Your views will be used to develop a proposal for university approval with a start date for the new provision of September 2019.

To enable us to capture the widest possible range of views we have an online questionnaire, will be hosting a workshop at the Learning and Teaching Conference and will be meeting with groups and individuals to gather their views.

As we gather your ideas and suggestions we will be updating the blog and review web page with the ideas. You are welcome to respond to these ideas as they are posted.

You can find the questionnaire here and our web page here .
