The ability of the institution to be able to deliver quality teaching in higher education has never been more important than it is now. The need to adapt to new delivery methods and in many cases review the curriculum design has created unprecedented challenges but also an opportunity to reflect in depth on multiple aspects of current policy and practice.
Our portfolio will both celebrate best practice and recognise opportunities for future development, ultimately aspiring to achieve sustainable teaching excellence.
We bring a wealth of expertise to our portfolio of services in teaching and learning, our Student Success frameWORKS are informed by research and developed with the sector and by the sector and are embedded into teaching and learning practice across HE, and events conferences and symposia have built a knowledge base of best practice that we curate and share with the global HE community.
Going Forward Together
Our 2022-23 portfolio continues to be shaped by feedback from across the higher education sector and blends high quality learning and insight-sharing opportunities delivered using a range of innovative techniques and platforms both in person and virtually.

New to Teaching - Enhance your teaching practices
Advance HE has designed New to Teaching, aimed at nurturing and developing contemporary professional learning, with a particular focus on online pedagogies and digital delivery within a fully virtual or hybrid teaching spaces.

New to Teaching is a course aimed specifically at those who are new to teaching in HE, new to delivering courses via online platforms, or have received no formal training in HE teaching.
Enthusiastic and passionate course leaders who put their teaching into practice. I have come away with a great set of tools to venture into digital teaching with confidence."
