New academics

If you are new to the School, and/ or new to teaching in higher education (HE) in the UK, welcome!

You should receive an invitation to the School's New Academic Induction Programme that runs annually in early September. This will provide a useful introduction to teaching and research at LSE. If you haven't already heard about the induction, please contact us at| or ext. 6624 giving your name, contact details, and where you are working in the School.

The New Academic Induction Programme provides an ideal opportunity to meet colleagues in other departments. People often forge links during the programme that endure over the years, and provide interesting opportunities for collaboration at a later stage.

All new lecturers should have an academic mentor - check with your department if this has not already been arranged.

For information about other development opportunities for teaching staff at LSE, both formal and informal, see our Academic Development Scheme| page.

To get a feel for UK HE teaching developments, it is worth visiting some of the key UK HE websites. In particular:
