If you teach, supervise, assess or support students’ learning at UCL, in any context, UCL Arena is for you.
It’s a meeting place for
colleagues to share approaches to teaching and learning in our
research-intensive university - a conceptual space for debate and exploration through a variety of events.
UCL Arena is accredited by the Higher Education Academy, so
it’s also a place in which you can choose to gain professional recognition
awards for your teaching expertise.
UCL Arena has three strands. Please click on the link below which relates to your role. There you’ll find out more about what UCL Arena can offer you – and also more about what 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 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.
