Abstract

The UK government has established an Institute for Learning and Teaching (ILT) and will soon require that all professional teaching staff in Higher education (HE) achieve membership through either a portfolio or upon the successful completion of accredited courses. This development is driving a rapid expansion of coherent staff development programmes offering full recognition of the professional development staff undertake. The aim of this paper is to examine ongoing research which will inform future developments in faculty development in the use of communications and Information Technologies (C&IT) in teaching and learning. An analysis of responses to an accredited staff development programme is presented within the context of the shifting role of the university teacher. This study will be of interest to staff developers who wish to offer this form of support to faculty within their own institution.
