Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

PHEP is structured around individual meetings with a PHEP Consultant. The meeting provides you with the opportunity to reflect on and to discuss in confidence the priorities and challenges of your appointment. Meetings generally last between one-and-a-half and two hours, and are recorded by a confidential written summary of the discussion. The agenda is driven by you and your needs, but typically discussions focus on:

  • priorities during probation
  • questions relating to teaching, learning and assessment at Cambridge
  • information on research opportunities
  • Cambridge's many cultures, infrastructures and facilities
  • approaches to career progression
  • any questions

 

All probationary University lecturers are expected to attend one individual meeting, which together with the Seminar is a core feature of PHEP.

You are welcome to arrange follow-up individual meetings with the PHEP consultant at any stage of your probation to review your progress and explore options.

 

Feedback

"I really enjoyed our conversation yesterday, and I appreciated the opportunity to pause and reflect on the challenges and opportunities this new post will offer."

"I did find our meeting very useful both for thinking about what I might get out of my three years in this job, and thinking strategically about how I might fit into my department and the university."

"Thanks for our meeting it was an enjoyable and useful conversation. Most valuable for me was a chance to articulate some 'obvious' things to a 3rd party, as a way of reminding myself of key priorities."

"I always leave meetings with you feeling inspired!"
