Teaching, Learning & Assessment

Senior Fellow of the HEA: processes and planning an application

2 hours

Descriptor 3 (Senior Fellow) of the ‘UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education’ (UKPSF) recognises individuals ‘able to provide evidence of a sustained record of effectiveness in relation to teaching and learning, incorporating for example, the organisation, leadership and / or management of specific aspects of teaching and learning provision’. Many Cardiff staff work at this level – let’s get you the external recognition! This introductory two-hour session is aimed at colleagues who are thinking about applying to the HEA for SFHEA recognition. We shall look at the elements of the Standards Framework and discuss the process involved in the application and recognition process. By the end of the session participants should be able to identify the ‘D3-ness’ of their role, have thoughts about framing two evidential case-studies and be confident to start writing an application for recognition. Participants will be offered optional application-writing support through a follow-up, free workshop.
