An introduction to working in higher education
This programme recognises that new academics in small institutions often take on a degree of strategic responsibility relatively quickly. Such staff members value an awareness of how the higher education sector works, and of where small institutions sit in the sector, in addition to an opportunity to explore their own teaching, learning and research practice. This programme is for academics who are relatively new to the sector.
