Latests news on our provision for University tutors and demonstrators.
We are running a new series of monthly drop-in sessions designed to support Edinburgh tutors and staff who are currently applying for HEA accreditation of their teaching via the HEA's Individual Recognition Route. The agenda is open, responsive to what participants bring along from their work in progress.
For people who are new to this or just getting started on thinking about applying to the HEA for recognition, it is important to participate first in the IAD course for tutors and demonstrators 'Recording teaching and routes to accreditation' to pick up on what is required for the application before they come to this workshop.
Queries about the workshop are best addressed to Miesbeth Knottenbelt.
We are developing course materials for an accedited course for tutors and demonstrators and seeking formal accreditation for this course from the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
We hope to pilot this new course later in 2013 and are currently seeking comments on outline plans.
Detailed plans for comment our on our task group wiki:
A taskgroup was launched by Senatus Learning and Teaching Committee in October 2011 to discuss the university's regulations around tutors and demonstrators and the ways in which they are supported in their roles at Edinburgh.
