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 days.
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 includes a welcome from key LSE colleagues at the School including the Director and the Pro-Directors, an introduction to different aspects of academic life at LSE, and a drinks reception in the Senior Common Room with members of academic staff from across the School.
After the first day, the programme is focused on teaching and learning issues, including lecturing and seminar teaching, assessment and feedback, academic advising and PhD supervision.
All new academics are 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.
In addition to the main programme, the Teaching and Learning Centre organises an informal meet-up, Introduction to LSE: International perspective in later September. This offers context for academics with limited experience of the UK system, and a chance to ask questions. To book a place for this gathering, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next NAIP will run from 9-11 September 2019.
