The issue of teaching-based promotion comes under the microscope at this SLMS event on Wednesday 9 July.

Attendees at this session will have the chance to:

  • Hear from colleagues who have been promoted
  • Find out about evidence that can be used in an application
  • See and discuss a successful application form
  • Ask questions about research-based promotions.

Speakers and Q&A panel members will include Vice-Provost (Education) Professor Anthony Smith, and Professor Peter Delves and Principal Teaching Fellow Carol Sacchett, UCL Brain Sciences.
