UCL Summer School invites proposals for STEM modules

2 May 2018

The UCL Summer School is inviting proposals for STEM modules to be offered in summer 2019 and beyond.

Students in the city

The Summer School offers the opportunity for students from around the world to study at UCL for either three or six weeks and gain credit towards their degree programmes.

Proposals are invited for 15 credit (0.5 course unit) undergraduate level modules offering 45 contact hours over a three-week period through a blend of lectures, seminars/tutorials and excursions. Teaching dates for Session One are 1-19 July 2019 and teaching dates for Session Two are 22July to 9 August 2019.

Proposals which do one or more of the following would be particularly welcome:

· view a STEM subject from a London perspective or emphasise UCL's central London location

· view a STEM subject from an 'international' or 'global' perspective

· take UCL's Grand Challenges as a reference point

· take an interdisciplinary approach

· integrate research components and/or an experiential dimension wherever possible

Remuneration is £2,000 for each module developed and £85 per teaching hour (£35 for TAs). UCL Arena has confirmed that applicants for Associate Fellowship or Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy could use this opportunity as a case study when applying.

Further programme information and a full list of modules on offer in 2018 can be found here: www.ucl.ac.uk/summerschool.

Please contact the Summer School Office at summer@ucl.ac.uk or on extension x25522 for further information or to request a module proposal form.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 25 May 2018.
