Student Ambassador for Learning and Teaching (SALT)


Closing date: 6 November - (midday)

Interview date: to be confirmed 

Dear Students,

The Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) are looking for 10 dedicated students to form a Student Partnership and Consultation Group. The group will work with Academic Developers and Learning Technology Advisors to give feedback on different technology enhanced learning (TEL) platforms used at UEL, assessment practices, and course design.

CELT are at the forefront of innovative ideas for learning and teaching at UEL. Our focus is on the student experience, and we want all our academics to be engaging in activities that provide the greatest benefits to UEL students. In achieving our goals though, we depend greatly on the student voice to help shape CELT’s endorsement of new technologies and pedagogies.

The group will be asked to attend four meetings in the academic year and will be called upon for feedback when emerging technologies or new/ existing practices are to be considered or evaluated. You must be adept at using UEL’s current TEL platforms such as Moodle, Turnitin and Panopto and have a keen interest in voicing opinions regarding learning and teaching.

The chosen students will receive the following benefits:

  • Formal Title: Student Ambassador for Learning and Teaching (SALT)
  • Profiles on the CELT website
  • Access to some CELT training events, which could be used as CPD
  • Refreshments during consultation meetings
  • References for those who attend at least 3 consultation meetings and are proactive in their work with CELT

If you are interested, please complete the following. Candidates will be shortlisted and asked to attend an informal interview. Thank you and Good Luck!
