The introduction of the York Pedagogy is part of the new University Strategy, which was agreed in December 2014.
Implementation is supported by a dedicated project team, augmented using strategic University funding, based in the Academic Support Office. Members of this team are working closely with departmental colleagues to facilitate progress and relieve some of the workload for academic staff, for example by helping Chairs of Boards of Studies and programme leaders directly, facilitating team discussions, running bespoke workshops on emergent themes, and sharing exemplars of good practice. Where appropriate, we will also pursue initiatives at Faculty and/or institutional levels.
Departments were also invited to bid for funding in both 2015-16 and 2016-17 to support the release of staff time to work on the pedagogy initiative.
