Session Format

This workshop aims to develop the measurement of educational development activities in a meaningful way.  Educational development units (EDUs) have increasingly been required to demonstrate value for money through evidence of impact.  Approaches frequently involve metrics and rarely meaningfully capture the transformational nature of much educational development activity.  In this workshop, participants will evaluate and discuss results of a recent survey of British and Australian universities which identify the range of frameworks and measures that are being used.  Participants will then draft a framework to be piloted by EDUs for the generation of more meaningful evidence of impact.
