Teaching Fellow Lunches occurr monthly and are open to any member of staff that supports Learning and Teaching. They consist of a 15 minute presentation by a member of staff about a project they're working on or a similar endeavour, with the intention to share current progress and gain feedback from colleagues. This presentation is followed by a 20 minute Q&A session. These events occur in person on South Kensington campus or online via Microsoft Teams. Catered lunch is provided.

Learning and Teaching job family review

 Charlotte Kestner (FoNS), Cloda Jenkins (Business School, Jeffrey Vernon (Medicine) and Robert Chatley (FoE)

Over the past year, a working group of teaching staff from across the College worked with Professor Emma McCoy to review the various job levels, descriptions and titles that Imperial has within the Learning and Teaching family. They compared our structures and pathways with those at peer universities, and discussed extensively with teaching staff across Imperial. As a result of this they have developed a proposal for a revised set of descriptions for roles at the different levels that they hope colleagues will find helpful when thinking about their career progression.

The recent changes in College senior management have meant there has been a short hiatus in moving this forward, and so they are taking this opportunity to present some of the work done so far, the background and thinking behind it, and to get input from the wider community.

Geographic Bias in Curricula 

Robyn Price and Mark Skopec

Imperial College has developed an analytics tool that presents data on the diversity of countries and country income level of journal article authors cited on College reading lists. There is currently data for over 13,000 articles cited by approximately 1,700 Imperial reading lists over different time periods. 

It has been created to help staff or students access data that may inform broader discussions about representation in curricula. The tool is available on request to staff and students who would like to engage in meaningful exploration of their curricula.
