What is the Learning and Teaching Practice Program?

The Learning and Teaching (L&T) Practice Program offers a supported route to achieve either Fellow or Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. This program involves a written, reflective application – differing from the other HEA Fellowship programs, which are achieved on completion of a program of study.

Why should you be interested in this program?

Achieving Fellow and Senior Fellow status is formal recognition of your achievements in teaching and in enhancing the student learning experience, combined with scholarship, professional development and academic leadership. The fellowships are based on merit, and provide evidence that can support promotion applications.

Who should consider embarking on this program?

This pathway is intentionally designed to be inclusive of the activities and experiences which already make up your career in higher education. In this pathway you are going to examine, and reflect on, your career through the lens of the Professional Standards Framework (PSF).

If you are completely new to teaching in a university then this program is not for you and instead you should consider one of the other Griffith HEA accredited programs for a more structured route to enhance your professional learning.
