The changing face of educational development in HE – Educational Developers in 2024

16 May 2024 - 17 May 2024
Location: Liverpool

The SEDA Spring Conference 2024 will focus on the changing face of educational development in higher education. We welcome contributions from all those who lead and support effective learning and teaching practices, including educational/academic developers, learning and teaching leads, student experience professionals, learning designers/technologists, enhancement leads, and academics and other colleagues researching higher education, to share research, perspectives and practice.

As our Higher Education institutions adapt to increasing pressures on the perceived value and measured outcomes of degrees, our role to support our academic colleagues to embed new approaches has moved from thematic enhancement to regulated mandates. Challenges such as assessment reviews, engaging blended experiences and maintaining academic standards in the face of new technologies, ask educational developers to become all-rounders of higher education policy. As our business of developing reflective teachers continues, how we adapt in these environments often in third spaces requires the need to connect and share practice as a community more and more. The SEDA Spring Conference offers an opportunity for delegates to access a supportive network to work together and address our common challenges to support student and academic success. This is an opportunity to share practices you are using and the impact of these, and also to engage in some problem-solving workshops.
