SEDA Summer School 2007: Supporting Educational Change

20 June 2007 - 22 June 2007

Location: Ashorne Hill Conference Centre, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire

This three-day course is designed to provide high quality personal and professional development for colleagues working as staff and educational developers in higher education - including HE in FE. It is aimed at individuals with less than three years experience in this role. The course is suitable for people working in a range of contexts, including:

                          

  • Institutional educational development units
  • Faculties / Schools / Departments
  • Higher Education Academy Subject Centres
  • CETLs

Participants will benefit from a course that is highly participative and practical.  Over the three days, participants will develop and deepen the skills and conceptual frameworks necessary to plan, run and evaluate successful educational development activities and projects. After each workshop session, participants will consider ways to apply their new learning to their own professional contexts. There will be opportunities for small group work, and tutorial time with an experienced developer, to support participants in planning how to take what they have learned back into their workplaces.

Workshop sessions will be both practice based and grounded in research on learning and teaching. Sessions will be facilitated by a number of highly experienced developers, and will themselves model a variety of active and reflective learning techniques that participants will then be able to use. A full programme will be available in due course.

We are delighted that the same team that facilitated the very successful and highly-rated SEDA Summer School ’06 has been able to come back together again to facilitate the Summer School of ’07.  They very much look forward to you joining them for another rewarding event of personal and professional development, growth and transformation.

Very positive feedback from previous participants indicates that they have particularly valued their opportunities to step back from day-to-day business; to gain new skills and professional confidence; to network; and to leave with focused, practical plans ready for implementation.
