Doron Cohen (Senior Lecturer) and Nick Weise (Lecturer) introduced their structure and concept of the new Teaching-focused Lecturer Network. The network provides a space for early career teaching focused staff to come together no matter what contract type they have (teaching focused, teaching and research or research only) to discuss common issues. The network is supported by The University of Manchester Institute of Teaching and Learning (UMITL) and creates a cross-Faculty, University wide network for junior teaching focused staff in order to foster a common sense of identity and community. The network provides a collective voice within the University to discuss and learn more about common experiences and more importantly provide support for career development.
