In 2012-13 we launched six MDRs, exclusively for our members, to support in-house development programmes. These resource packs feature slides, case studies and facilitator's guides. The Current Higher Education Context has been revised and updated by a team from the Institute of Education, and will be published by the end of the year. Two new MDRs are in development: one to support the development of people making the transition into leadership roles; and one on working with motivation which may be particularly useful for those working with academic leaders. The first is currently being tested with colleagues from the staff development community and members of the target audience. Both will be launched during 2014-15.

Our members benefit from a number of free events each year, led by our network of National and Regional Coordinators. Coming soon are new Change Network events led by Rebecca Nestor (South and East regions) and Judy Harris (East and West Midlands, in January and March 2015 respectively). Dates and speaker details are available. Lawrie Phipps is developing a series of online seminars and other activities for piloting in the Yorkshire, Humberside and North East regions. Each session will cover a topic of interest in the region and then follow up with a more general round up of issues and horizon scanning. The session will last no more than an hour and the first of these will be in the early autumn; please contact Lawrie firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and issues that you might want to see covered.
If you would like to suggest event topics for your region, please contact your National or Regional Coordinator
