Advance HE Teaching & Learning Conference 2018: Career-long professional learning about teaching in a research-intensive university

The renewed spotlight on teaching in HE has led many institutions to review the teaching qualifications held by academic staff and set new performance indicators. Yet the focus on achieving qualifications could distract the sector from the importance of career-long professional development for academics who teach. This session will report on the development of the ‘Higher Education Futures institute’ (HEFi) at the University of Birmingham to address this issue. Activities include introducing “MicroCPD” for all staff and developing an awards and recognition framework underpinned by the UKPSF and the Universitas 21 Framework for Conceptualising 21st Century Teaching.
