20 June 2013
Location: Roehampton University

This event is aimed at PGCert course leaders and tutors and will be facilitated by Fran Beaton, University of Kent, and Sally Bradley, Sheffield Hallam University. The event has four main aims:

  1. A brief overview of the policy contexts which have affected the development of PGCerts in the sector.  These include, for example, the debate about professionalisation (Commons Select committee) and the inclusion of qualifications in KIS.
  2. The accreditation process: experiences of course leaders. SEDA-accredited programme: John Lea, Canterbury Christ Church University. HEA-accredited programme Jo Peat, Roehampton University
  3. PGCerts in the disciplines: balancing generic T & L curricula and subject and institutional specialisms.  Creative and Performing Arts (Hilaire Graham, University of the Arts); Medical Education (Elizabeth Miles, St George’s London); Across the disciplines (Sue Moron-Garcia, University of Birmingham)
  4. Where next?

The day begins at 11am and finishes at 4.30pm
