SEDA Summer School for Educational Developers

19 June 2002 - 21 June 2002

Location: Lancaster House Hotel, Lancaster

This three day course is designed for those who have a professional role as educational and academic developers in higher education. It is aimed at those with less than three years experience and will support those who are working towards SEDA Fellowship. 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 experience, 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.

Sessions will be practice based, facilitated by experienced educational developers and grounded in research on learning and teaching. Presenters are David Baume FSEDA (Higher Education Consultant), Ali Cooper (University of Lancaster), Peter Kahn FSEDA (University of Manchester), Dr Helen King AFSEDA (LTSN-GEES), Dr Rhona Sharpe FSEDA (The Open University), Neill Thew (University of Sussex) 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.
