The Growing Your Skills in HE Learning and Teaching workshops have been designed for early-career academics who want to continue to develop their practice by working with peers from a range of institutions and disciplines. If you’ve a proven, sustained track record in HE teaching and you’re seeking recognition for your development, and to progress into a senior position, HEA Fellowship could add great value to your professional teaching experience.
In an age of teaching excellence frameworks, the use of pedagogical research to enhance and improve our teaching practice has never been more important.
Academics need to understand what approaches and strategies enhance student learning and engagement, and to be able to effectively assess the impact of their own teaching and learning strategies.
The workshop will be split between interactive sessions, case studies of pedagogical research and its impact, and opportunities to work in small, supportive groups designing future pedagogical research projects.
Participants will receive electronic copies of a range of resources and materials and will be invited to form a peer-community online after the workshop, to form an ongoing forum for support and learning around pedagogical research.
