High student satisfaction levels helped the University of Lincoln to secure a gold award in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework. Sue Rigby, Lincoln's deputy vice chancellor for student development, explains how encouraging staff to come up with their own solutions to problems is inspiring innovation.
When the University of Lincoln considered their current performance management processes through the eyes of their academic managers, it provided valuable insights. Liz Lacey explains how blending two different approaches helped to inform a review of the way performance planning is carried out by academic leads.
The University of Lincoln is developing a programme to tackle the lack of professional development schemes tailored to the needs of postgraduate students interested in an academic career. Rebecca Sanderson explains the project funded by the Innovation and Transformation Fund that explores how to provide postgraduate students with more effective career development opportunities.
Recently I visited the University of Lincoln at the invitation of the Vice-Chancellor, Mary Stuart. She was keen for us to see how the university is being transformed. The strides they are making in delivering efficiency are not just about ‘cashable savings’; they are about putting students at the heart of everything they do.
