Associate Fellowship (AFSEDA)

Who is it for? 
Associate Fellowship of SEDA (AFSEDA) is designed for SEDA members (individual or associate) who have some involvement in academic development. This might include people in roles such as early career academic developers, departmental learning and teaching co-ordinators, and others such as learning support staff and those involved in substantial projects or change initiatives. It is a developmental stage on the path towards achieving the Fellowship of SEDA.
