Reflections on Leadership in HE: Developing High Quality Staff to Deliver High Quality Learning Opportunities

  • Delivery:
  • Credits:

This unit provides you with an opportunity to reflect on your skills as leaders and to develop these further as role models and motivators for others to follow, creating a culture of creativity and continuous improvement. 

The UK government increasingly expects academics to offer excellent learning opportunities to students and the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) requires new ways of measuring quality and impact of teaching and learning. Leadership is a key element to successful curriculum development, adoption of appropriate and innovative pedagogic approaches and, therefore, a consistently high quality learning experience. 

You can enrol on the course as a stand-alone CPD unit or take the accredited route by attending a assignment workshop and submitting the assessment to achieve 20 Level 7 credits.
