This is one of the named awards available through SEDA’s Professional Development Framework. It is relevant to all staff involved in developing, embedding and leading practice in the use of digital and other educational technologies (including discipline specific technologies) as part of their professional work. This includes those teaching or supporting student learning, those supporting teachers or other staff, and those implementing technology-enhanced learning initiatives and strategies at curriculum, departmental and institutional/provider levels.
This award supports and credits the continuing professional development of any individual who is actively involved in developing, leading and embedding technology-enhanced learning practices in higher education. It promotes the effective use of current and emerging educational technologies, and technology-enhanced approaches, to support learning and educational practice in a rigorous, scholarly way. Although the context for the application of these skills and competencies is providing leadership in the use of educational technologies, the skills and competencies themselves are similar to those required in leading other teaching and development activities, including initiatives at curriculum, departmental and institutional/provider levels.
The award does not directly accredit technical skills.
Programmes accredited for the award should contribute to participants’ professional development and/or academic profile. They should enable individuals and teams to develop effective use of educational technologies and technology-enhanced practices in Higher Education, and promote dissemination of practice between colleagues and across subject disciplines. They should apply principles and research to the context of current institutional/provider strategies and support structures.
