Opportunities for Teaching Accreditation

 

Higher Education Academy: Briefing

Many UK universities now expect teaching and learning staff seeking tenure to have undertaken or to undertake a structured teaching and learning development course accredited by the HE Academy. This 1.5-hour small-group meeting provides an overview of how individuals may apply to the Higher Education Academy to gain accreditation of their teaching experience, as well as an introduction to the work of the Higher Education Academy.

Please note: this briefing does not explore approaches to teaching and learning and is focussed solely on explaining the process of applying to the HE Academy for recognition of teaching experience.

This course runs once a term.
