The Bath Scheme provides a route for experienced teaching staff to use their experience to become a nationally-recognised Fellow of the HEA. The Bath Scheme compliments our Bath Course for new academic staff and forms part of our drive to improve teaching standards for all students at the University of Bath.
The Bath Scheme’s Director, Dr Rachael Carkett, manages the scheme and with the support of the Departmental/Division Bath Scheme Champions applicants are supported through the process.
Professor Andy Burrows said, “The application process forced me to reflect on what I do and why I do it. It's easy for this to get squeezed out by more urgent matters, so having to take a step back is definitely beneficial. It's great to have my experience and commitment to education recognised with a Senior Fellowship."
Professor David Coley said, "I found the whole process both interesting and informative. It made me question some of the assumptions I build my teaching upon, and encouraged me to return to the literature to discover new approaches"
Dr Steffi Colyer added, “The support and resources really made this process more manageable. This wasn't just a "tick box exercise" for me. I found the reflective and forward-planning aspects of the application process particularly useful and have already implemented many new strategies in my teaching.”
