Teaching Fellowship Scheme
Recognition, encouragement and support for excellence in teaching
Welcome to Edinburgh Napier's Teaching Fellowship Scheme. The Fellowship exists to recognise and support good learning, teaching and assessment throughout the University. Staff are awarded the title of Teaching Fellow on demonstration of excellence in teaching as judged against a set of criteria endorsed by Edinburgh Napier's Academic Board. Appointments last for three years, but are renewable, and Fellows foster and promote excellence and innovation in teaching within their school, faculty or service across the University.
If you are interested in applying for a Fellowship, or would like to know more about how the Scheme works, consult our How to become a Teaching Fellow section. To find out more about the background to the Fellowship and how it was set up, read the article about the Development of the Scheme.
Our current Teaching Fellows boost the vitality of learning, teaching and assessment within schools and faculties – they have a number of significant external publications and have strategic committee representation throughout the University. They also produce a Teaching Fellows Journal twice a year.
The title of Senior Teaching Fellow is no longer available as part of the Teaching Fellowship Scheme as it is now a promoted post within the University structure. Senior Lecturer – Teaching Fellow Role profile information can be found within the Human Resources web pages at staff.napier.ac.uk/services/hr/recruitmentandselection/Pages/RoleDescriptionsandProfiles.aspx
