The HEA constantly seeks new ways to enhance learning and teaching and thus the student experience. Our wealth of resources represents ten years of work in the sector and our holistic, forward-thinking approach to improvement and achieving strategic goals.

In response to demand from our partner HE organisations, we have identified four distinct workstreams to help you navigate through our research and resources.

  • Curriculum design addresses graduate attributes, inter-culturalism, digital literacy and sustainable development, discipline-specific skills and interdisciplinary learning.
  • Innovative pedagogies explores inclusive and diverse student engagement.
  • Student transitions focuses on inclusivity, flexibility, widening access, equality and diversity. It also explores retention and student mobility and examines the impact of policy reform.
  • Staff transitions promotes the HEA’s work on teaching excellence, professionalisation, reward and recognition, including the use of the UKPSF in promotions criteria.

You may also search resources by theme, discipline or keyword.

We also have a host of downloads, toolkits, guidance and frameworks to guide you through our activities. If you’re applying for professional recognition, accreditation, looking for support through consultancy and services or to attend an HEA event, please see the relevant area of our site or contact us.
