Recognising professionalism in learning and teaching
Griffith’s Higher Education Academy fellowships offer professional recognition for your commitment to teaching, supporting your colleagues in their teaching and to enhancing students’ learning experiences and outcomes.
HEA Fellowships are globally recognised and portable across universities and are increasingly considered as part of the appointment and promotion process.
Griffith is currently piloting a HEA Fellowship Scheme and the second phase of this pilot will continue from May to November 2018. A limited number of institutionally supported places are available during this period. For more information about the scheme, please contact Dr Jude Williams or Tina Hodson.
In addition to the Pilot Scheme, Griffith is working towards accreditation of some of its existing professional learning programs and designing new ones. This will allow staff who successfully complete these programs to be awarded HEA Fellowship in the future. We are planning to have our HEA accredited programs in place by January 2019.

Professional Standards Framework
HEA Fellowships are based on the Professional Standards Framework (PSF) developed in the United Kingdom. The PSF sets out the knowledge, skills and values demonstrated by those teaching and/or supporting learning in higher education.
The PSF for teaching and supporting learning in higher education provides descriptors for each category of fellowship and information about the typical role and career stage indicative of the category.
There are four categories of Fellowship: Associate Fellow, Fellow, Senior Fellow and Principal Fellow. These categories span the wide range of practice carried out by staff who have a partial role in teaching or supporting learning through to those with strategic impact on learning and teaching within the institutional, national and/or international context.
