Professional Recognition

About this topic

We are committed to providing our students with excellent learning experiences, which results from enthusiastic staff sharing their disciplinary knowledge and skills based on effective pedagogic approaches.

In order to support this ambition we assists individual staff members by offering a range of scholarship activities through which they can develop their pedagogic understanding and teaching practices. The importance of this activity has been recognised in the our workload model for academic staff members, which includes an allocation for such development.

Underpinning this activity is the belief that the adoption of a reflective practice model by all staff involved in teaching maximises the benefit of scholarship activities and subsequent development of learning and teaching. All staff are, therefore, required to undertake peer review of learning and teaching on an annual basis.

Individuals are recognised as being best placed to identify any development needs, however as well as supporting externally provided opportunities there is a range of formal and informal activities offered at School, College and University level. The Centre for Education Innovation is also actively working to create communities of pedagogic practice, and funding opportunities to support them, by events run throughout the year.

This section provides further details on the full range of these activities including information relating to opportunities for external professional recognition of learning and teaching, such as the Higher Education Academy.
