Fwd: SEDA NETWORKING WORKSHOP: Enabling & Supporting Educational Change




This event is for colleagues based within academic departments, schools and faculties in higher education (including HE in FE) who have a role (formal or informal) in organisation, leadership and/or management of specific aspects of learning and teaching. 

For many staff, their learning & teaching activities and responsibilities go beyond designing curricula and working with students. They are involved in mentoring new colleagues, co-ordinating teams, leading projects, facilitating professional development workshops and seminars, communicating and sharing good practice, contributing to cross-faculty or cross-institutional initiatives, and so on. Whilst this work can be very rewarding there are also challenges including working with a range of different staff, leading without authority, and sometimes being the sole learning & teaching 'champion' in a department. This workshop will provide an opportunity to meet a range of colleagues with similar roles, to share experiences and ideas, and to explore some of the underpinning principles for this type of role in higher education. 

 

The aims of the workshop are to:

 

  • provide a welcoming, confidential space for sharing experiences, issues and ideas;
  • explore scholarship, policy and practice relating to educational development and change;
  • act as a springboard for further networking and professional development opportunities

 

The workshop price also includes a copy of SEDA Special 41 (Doing a Good Job Well - Being Recognised as an Experienced, Professional Teacher in HE)

Fwd: Forthcoming Advance HE Symposia








Thursday 18th July, 10am-4.30pm
"The Hidden Curriculum: Unpacking the academic practices critical for student success"

Participation rates in higher education grow generation by generation, and as a result the demographic profile of the student body changes. In response to this shifting profile educators must reconsider the assumptions they make in curriculum design taking into account the accrued cultural and social capital of this emergent student population. By way of a keynote session to be provided by Professor Paul Kleiman, participant-led workshops and presentations, and a closing plenary, the event will offer insights and solutions for the enhancement of curriculum design within departmental and institutional contexts. Drawing on research and evidence-informed practice, the event will appeal especially to academic leaders and professional staff with roles incorporating the oversight and design of curriculum, and retention and success for learners.

We are still accepting submissions for papers or workshops at this event (but only for a few more days). 

For further information, to submit, or to register to attend, please visit: 

Thursday 24th October, 10am-4.30pm
"On your marks: re-evaluating feedback and marking practices"

Assessment and feedback are enduring issues for the higher education sector both in the UK and internationally. This symposium will address the priority area of assessment feedback, focusing on the connected areas of marking practices and feedback processes. By way of a keynote session, participant-led workshops and presentations, and a closing plenary, the event will offer insights and solutions for the enhancement of marking and feedback practices within departmental and institutional contexts. Drawing on research and evidence-informed practice, the event will appeal especially to academic leaders and professional staff with roles incorporating the oversight and design of assessment and feedback with and for learners.

A keynote speaker will be announced soon, with the call for papers and registration details to follow this month (before end of June). For now, we hope some of you will be keen to add this event to your diaries.
