Who was LEADS for?
The programme was designed for Heriot-Watt University research students or research assistants who had a teaching responsibility and aspired to Heriot-Watt University Tutor/Marker or Teacher status.
LEADS students had to have an opportunity to demonstrate their teaching practice, to have this observed and to receive mentoring feedback. To be accepted on the programme, they needed to be teaching a group of UG or Master’s students for a minimum of 4 sessions during the programme period. An observed teaching session formed part of the programme assessment.
