This summer, the Centre for Learning and Teaching is offering an opportunity to find out more about HEA Fellowship through its 'Introduction to HEA Fellowships (Associate and Fellow)' activities, which include a webinar on Monday 15th July and access to a wide range of resources.
HEA Fellowship demonstrates a personal and institutional commitment to professionalism in learning and teaching in higher education. Fellowship can help staff:
- Consolidate personal development and evidence of professional practice in your higher education career;
- Demonstrate commitment to teaching, learning and the student experience, through engagement in a practical process that encourages research, reflection and development.
Fellowship is increasingly sought by employers across the higher education sector as a condition of appointment and promotion and is recognised and valued by a growing number of international institutions.
Anyone interested in finding out more about HEA Fellowship and how to start an application for Associate Fellow or Fellow can sign up for the webinar. Once registered, you will also have access at any time to a range of short videos that provide information about the UKPSF, fellowships and what your application should look like. Sign up here: https://teachinghub.bath.ac.uk/events/bath-scheme-introductory-writing-day-3/
The webinar itself will provide a brief summary, activities and opportunities, as well as offer an opportunity for Q&A, both as a group and individually.
If you are unsure which category of HEA fellowship you should make a claim for, have a go at the Fellowship Category tool: https://www.advance-he.ac.uk/form/fellowship-decision-tool. This self-analysis tool will ask about your professional activities in teaching and/or supporting learning in higher education. You will also be asked about the range of activities you undertake in your practice.
