Welcome to the Eddev blog

Welcome to the Educational Development Division Blog. I am Anne Qualter, Head of Educational Development. I know that a lot of people already know the EdDev team. The aim of this blog is not simply to tell you more about us, it is to provide a source of information, views and ideas, all around the idea of academic development in staff and student learning.

For those of you who don’t know, the EdDev team has a very wide brief: we support early career research staff development; skills development for post graduate students and support for  their supervisors; e-learning support through the eLearning Unit; the Curriculum Review Team (CRT) coordinates, informs and provides consultancy  on curriculum review;  we provide CPD in learning and teaching for staff and a range of accredited programmes in learning and teaching; we support student learning and employability skill development on line and face to face; and we also work on specific projects with individuals, teams, academic departments and whole faculties designed to enhance the student experience. We are here to help. Given the range, we hope that this blog will provide a lively means of sharing the excitement of learning and the joys, pleasures and frustrations of teaching. We welcome your comments, and indeed, would very much welcome your own blog contributions.
