Academic Development Communities in Scotland: awareness, participation, recognition

19 September 2013

Location: Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU LEAD, H113, Harley Building)

This one day, participative conference aims to build our academic and educational development communities in Scotland by bringing together relevant and interested individuals and organisations to discuss closer collaboration, collegial opportunities and potential joint activity. Through brief presentations and a communities fayre, the day will provide an opportunity to learn more about the aims, work and values of Scottish Higher Education Development (SHED), the Staff and educational Development Association (SEDA), the Association for Learning Technologies (ALT) and the Higher Education Academy (HEA). Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about fellowships and other forms of professional recognition and development offered by, or through, these organisations.  In addition, we will hear the experiences of individuals gaining fellowships and recognition.  There will be ample opportunities for everyone to contribute their own views, ideas and experiences of community, professional recognition and academic development.

Audience: This event will be of interest to staff based in Scotland who are involved in academic and educational development in learning, teaching, professional development and recognition in learning and teaching, or in supporting others in technology enhanced learning. 

Fee: £25.00. We have been able to keep the fee at this low level as a result of the generosity of the Higher Education Academy which has provided sponsorship, and of Glasgow Caledonian University which is providing the venue free of charge.
