The New Academic Induction Programme (NAIP) for academics joining the LSE runs each year in early September, before the start of Michaelmas Term. It takes place over 3-4 days. The NAIP this year ran from Monday 7 to Thursday 10 September 2020, on Zoom. This year it included asynchronous elements as well as more traditional online sessions.
All initial invites are sent out in July - new names being added to the list as we are made aware of them by their LSE Departments and LSE HR.
The first day of the programme included a welcome from key colleagues at the School including the Director and the Pro-Directors, which provided an introduction to different aspects of academic life at LSE.
After the first day, the programme focused on teaching and learning issues, including lecturing and seminar teaching, assessment and feedback and academic mentoring and inclusivity.
All new academics were strongly encouraged to attend the NAIP. For new assistant professors who will be undertaking the LSE Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education, it forms the core attendance requirements for the programme.
