In 2018-19, there was a significant increase in the number of events offered by HEFi and the number of individual staff attending them. HEFi launched its new Showcase Series, offering a programme of CPD workshops led by staff from across the University who shared their evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning.
Quote: "Spaces like this are really valuable to meet and learn from like-minded practitioners from across the University who are striving to improve their teaching practice."
The HEFi Festival was even bigger and better in 2019, offering a week-long programme of CPD sessions designed to develop teaching practice and support applications for the HEA Fellowship.
Following attendance at the Festival, staff have identified a number of new actions, such as:
- "I am going to look into how to design activities for feedforward and easy to manage formative assessments."
- "Start a portfolio to keep evidence of impact."
- "Evaluate the impact of my teaching approach on students."
HEFi has also hosted several external events including a Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA) workshop for Programme Leads, an Advance HE Standardisation Event for Fellowship judgements, and a symposium for the Heads of eLearning Forum (HeLF).
