ADM-HEA ANNOUNCEMENTS


ADM-HEA continues to March 2012


We are pleased to report that our bid to secure ‘transition funding’ from the Higher Education Academy was successful and means that we can continue our work (be it on a reduced level of funding) until March 2012.  We will be working with the Academy to ensure continuation of support for teaching and learning in our disciplines as it moves to a new management structure and way of working.

In the meantime we will continue to keep you up to date with sector news in our weekly bulletin, support our funded learning and teaching projects and develop a number of events to explore pedagogic priorities in our subjects.  We will also continue to collect and share your expertise and experiences of learning and teaching in art, design and media via Networks
