The role of the course leader
Elizabeth Staddon of the Teaching and Learning Exchange is currently engaged in a cross-institutional study focussing on the role of the course leader.
Recognising the significance of this role to institutions and their students, the research team will be exploring and making recommendations about how the course leader role is allocated and defined by universities, the range of activities course leaders do and should undertake, and associated professional development needs and support.
