Global Perspectives Webinars

As part of our enhanced range of member benefits for the 2019/20 academic year, we are running a series of webinars which cover the themes of ‘facing the future’ and ‘global perspectives’, and will focus on creating and sharing new knowledge as well as an opportunity to engage in discussion with colleagues from Advance HE member institutions globally.

The ‘Global Perspectives’ webinars are timed for a worldwide audience and therefore usually fall outside core hours in the UK and will be recorded to allow access within the individuals normal working pattern. 

The first webinar of the Global Perspectives webinars is entitled ‘Professionalising Teaching in HE: building a global standard of professional’ with speakers from the USA, Australia and an UK institution which provides Advance HE Accredited provision globally.  
All those joining the webinar will be invited to take part in the discussion.

This webinar will walk through the successes, and challenges, of galvanising a hugely diverse sector in agreement of a universal standard for professionalism in teaching in higher education. It will discuss the drivers behind the success of the standards and their broad and universal appeal, including: the link between student success and professionally developed teaching staff; the professional identity of teaching in HE; metrics and league table performance; institutional enhancement agendas; and pedagogical innovation and curriculum development.
