Current work

Consultancy on inclusive curriculum with the University of Bath; work with LSE on their postgraduate certificate for graduate teaching assistants; developing learning materials including an ebook; analysing data from our research project, ExILED; running workshops, most recently at UCL and Bath.  

We are currently directing and researching a SEDA legacy grant project entitled ExILED (Exploring the Identities and Locations of Education Developers). We are also in the final stages of editing our e-book called Disciplinary Conversations which contains academics' multimedia narratives about their experiences of being learners in their subjects. The book will be a resource for  academic professional development programmes in universities.

At the University of Bath, we are supporting the development of strategy on inclusive curriculum. This has included a review of practice in UK HE and elsewhere, developing workshop materials, running a workshop for staff from across the university and drafting an institutional statement.

We have recently completed work on the UKPSF Impact project with SEDA, commissioned by the HEA. We co-wrote the final report and researched and produced the institutional case studies and the bulk of the vodcasts.

We have also completed work with three HE institutions (Hull, LSE and Southampton Solent) on a SEDA-funded research project to explore the use of open educational resources in educational development.

Previously, HEDERA worked as materials developers on the Disciplinary Thinking project, led by Dr Helen King at the University of Bath. Our role was to develop resources for educational developers to use if they want to include discipline-based activities within generic courses. 

For UCL, we undertook a User Requirements study for an externally facing E-learning portal, following work on supporting the development of e-learning strategy. 

We have also run several workshops recently - on assessment and on academic writing - in London and Glasgow.
