Doing the Fellowship helped towards affirming my identity to me as an educational developer and helped me to see that I was becoming credible in this role.
Who is it for? Fellowship of SEDA (FSEDA) is suitable for those involved in mainstream academic development who lead and
contribute to significant change initiatives. This might include faculty or
department bases, learning and teaching development roles or people in other
professional development roles in tertiary and higher
education. It can include people in similar roles in other organisations where the education and training of adults takes place.
How do you achieve a SEDA Fellowship? By successful completion of the Supporting and Leading Educational Change course. (Occasionally SEDA may offer an equivalent course with a focus on a specific area of work, for example Employer Engagement/Work Based Learning).
