Values in Higher Education
The CPD4HE project is developing resources to support the professional development of those who teach in HE. The resources are aimed particularly at staff working towards accreditation under the UK Professional Standards Framework (either through an accredited course or individually). However, others may well find them useful. They are openly available and may be edited and re-used, within the terms of a Creative Commons licence.
They have released their first resources, on 'Values in Higher Education' and are hoping for feedback. You can find the resources on the project website . The resources include an introduction, which describes the general approach to the topic, a collection of learning activities, an annotated bibliography and short audio commentaries by the author. There is a simple feedback tool on each page, to collect responses and comments, which will help us develop the resources.
Resources on Assessment and Feedback, and Technology-Enhanced Learning will follow shortly. A full list of topics can be found on the project web page.
CPD4HE is part of the UKOER (Open Educational Resources) programme http://www.jisc.ac.uk/oer/ which aims to make high quality educational resources freely available, easily discovered online and routinely re-used by learners and educators worldwide. The programme is funded by JISC and the HEA.
