Session Format
This workshop is a response to emerging trends and patterns that seek to measure aspects of academic work and the student experience. Educational Development work has not been exempt from this level of scrutiny with units increasingly required to evaluate value and impact. Such approaches are frequently metric based and rarely meaningfully capture the richness and transformational nature of Educational Development work. We invite participants to engage in discussion and activity which re-theorises and re-energises ways of showing added value and impact, using conceptual frameworks and scholarly approaches which include both quantitative and qualitative approaches to evidence gathering.
