Summer School 2003 for Staff and Educational Developers

23 June 2003 - 25 June 2003

Location: The Royal Court Hotel, Coventry

This three day course is designed for those who have a professional role as educational and academic developers in higher education. This includes HE in FE. It is aimed at those with less than three years experience in this role. Participants may include staff in educational development units, those who have a role in LTSN Centres or those responsible for co-ordinating teaching and learning developments in their department or faculty.

Building on last year’s event, the course will be designed around workshop activities and participants will focus on their own work, concentrating on developing the skills and conceptual framework necessary to plan, run and evaluate educational development activities to meet the needs of higher education institutions. It will include an opportunity to learn more about the Associate and Full SEDA Fellowship Scheme.

Sessions will be practice based and facilitated by experienced educational developers and grounded in research on learning and teaching.  Presenters are likely to include David Baume FSEDA (Independent Consultant), Ali Cooper (University of Lancaster), Peter Kahn FSEDA (University of Manchester), Rhona Sharpe FSEDA (The Open University) and Sue Thompson (Liverpool John Moores University). The workshop element will involve example case studies, role play and collaborative problem solving supported by a range of materials. The course will include opportunity for small group work and tutorial time with an experienced developer to support action planning. A draft programme is available from the SEDA website.
