Teaching and Learning CPD

HEFi offers a diverse range of exciting opportunities for continuous professional development and recognition. Our futures-focused CPD invites academic and professional services colleagues across the University to come together, learn from each other, and share best practice in teaching and learning.

Our CPD includes our innovative cross-disciplinary peer observation scheme (the Open Classroom) and face-to-face events that explore evidence-based teaching practice. Opportunities for recognition include the HEFi Fellows and Scholars, and Advance HE. Take a look at what we have to offer below:

HEFi offers two recognition awards for those staff who make a major and sustained contribution to excellence in leadership of research intensive teaching and learning across the University.

ILT is aimed at anyone who has, or expects to have, a teaching, training, tutoring or laboratory-demonstrating role, or can be taken just out of interest by staff members, including PGRs.

The Accessible Educator Course on Canvas invites you to reflect on your current teaching practice around Digital Accessibility and to consider your attitudes and actions as an Accessible Educator.

This initative is to support academic and professional services staff with ensuring all students feel they belong at the University of Birmingham.
