New member of the Editorial Committee of Educational Developments Magazine

Posted on: Friday 24 January 2014



The Editorial Committee of Educational Developments is looking for a new member. Ideally this would be someone who brings new elements to the group, whose members at present have a range of interests in managing or being part of units, running PGCerts and other courses, educational development consultancy and the application of new technology, with links to the Higher Education Academy and the National Union of Students.

The magazine works through four planning meetings a year at which proposals are made, ideas are discussed and articles are commissioned. There is a lot of email traffic as articles are followed up, read and edited. One or two of the group take responsibility for editing each issue, which involves dealing with any problems, preparing the articles for printing and reading the proofs after the issue is designed.

We are looking for someone with a broad knowledge of the ‘world’ of educational development and who is attuned to our readership and their needs. The crucial skill is commissioning: persuading busy educational developers to write articles quickly! Educational Developments is a topical magazine with quite rapid responses.

Forthcoming meetings will take place on 6 March 2014 (at which all applications will be considered), followed by 29 May and 4 September 2014.

If you are interested in joining the board, please describe your interest and what you might bring to the task in an email to office@seda.ac.uk by 28 February 2014.
