Professional Development on Learning and Teaching

The teaching and learning development strand of HEFi work is led by the Educational Development Team, a group of experienced practitioners from a range of discipline backgrounds. The work of the team complements and is supported by the HEFi Digital Team who offer support for using digital tools in an educational setting.

Many of the opportunities for professional development that are offered through this strand of work are recognised in HEFi’s Awards and Recognition Framework that was launched in October 2018. The Framework draws on the Universitas 21 Framework for Conceptualising 21st Century Teaching and on the UK Professional Standards Framework and offers opportunities to engage at every career stage with opportunities to “give back” to the education community.

Key strands of work include:

  • Teaching development and support for early career staff;
  • Teaching qualifications for staff involved in teaching and supporting the learning of our students;
  • Career-long professional development (in collaboration with the wider HEFi team) for academic staff and those in supporting learning roles;
  • Educational enhancement and innovation in the curriculum.
