Teaching Enhancement Scheme

The School’s of Mathematics Teaching Enhancement Scheme (TES) is a part of the University of Leeds TES policy. It is designed with minimal formal expectations. It aims to engage teaching staff actively in new initiatives, policies, and enhancements, addressing the School’s strategic priorities in student education, while giving staff some choice in the area they wish to get involved in.

For details of the University Policy see http://ses.leeds.ac.uk/info/21050/teaching_enhancement_scheme.

The current organisation: 

1. Post-docs, RPGs and temporary teaching staff participate on a voluntary basis; the participation of permanent members of the teaching staff is mandatory.

2. At the beginning of each academic year, the School Taught Student Education Committee  (TSEC) compiles a list of  themes for that year’s TES and provides a brief description for each of the themes. The themes are to be based on the current issues, initiatives, strategic priorities and suggestions from staff and students, with some themes running for more than one year.  Each theme is to be explored by a particular TES group. Once the themes are finalised, the members of School's teaching staff are asked  for top three choices for the themes they wish to participate in. These choices make a backbone of the TES group selection, which is the responsibility of TES Officer and Director of Student Education.  Other selection factors are equal size of groups, a harmonious mixture of youth and experience, a reasonable representation of all of the School’s departments. One member of each group is asked to be its convenor and hence organise its activities, keep records and report the results to the Quality Enhancement Officer.  Some themes may be natural successors to the last year ones, but it is up to individuals involved to decide whether they want to continue in the successor-group or join another group.

3.  Each TES group is expected to arrange at least two one-hour group meetings, one each semester. The group convenor sends a report to Quality Enhancement Officer, based on the outcomes of these meetings. The type and number of actual activities is not specified but to be decided by each group based on the specifics of its theme.  Groups are also encouraged to develop and adjust the focus within each theme as deemed appropriate. 

4. The group reports should be written using the forms provided below.  The final report should include a recommendation on continuation of the theme for the next TES round.    

5.  The School's TES is overseen by the School's  Quality Enhancement Officer, who is the first point of contact for all related issues.   The current School's Quality Enhancement Officer is Professor Serguei Komissarov.
