If you teach, supervise, assess or support students’ learning at UCL, in any context, UCL Arena is for you.
UCL Arena is a meeting place where colleagues share approaches to teaching and learning in our research-intensive university - a space for debate and exploration through a variety of events.
UCL Arena is accredited by the Higher Education Academy, so you
can apply for nationally recognised awards for your teaching expertise.
There are three UCL Arena pathways. Please look at the links below and select the option which suits your role to find out more about what UCL Arena can offer you. You'll also see how you can contribute to the UCL Arena community.
UCL Arena One is a development pathway for postgraduate students who teach (usually called PGTAs) at UCL, leading (optionally) to the submission of an application to become an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
This part of UCL Arena is for Lecturers and Teaching Fellows on probation, who need to gain a teaching qualification in order to complete their probationary requirements. The course enables participants to apply to become a UCL Arena Fellow and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Arena Open is for all other staff who teach, supervise, assess or support students’ learning at UCL. It is a flexible programme of events and opportunities which focus on advancing research-based education at UCL. The scheme is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA), meaning that UCL can confer awards relating to teaching and leadership upon its own staff.
