EDS provides academic and related development opportunities for staff at Birmingham City University and its partner institutions, including credit-bearing Masters' level provision.
EDS delivers educational development courses for academic and academic-related staff, including the Postgraduate Certificate Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (PGCert). Additional HE-specific modules may be studied at Postgraduate Diploma and Master’s Degree level (Learning and Teaching in Higher Education), through the School of Education.
Work completed on our taught course can also contribute towards evidencing required capabilities, as measured by the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). Participants achieving the required standard within our PGCert programme will automatically be accredited as Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). We also offer a range of courses recognised under the Professional Development Framework of the Staff and Education Development Association (SEDA).
In addition to our scheduled credit-bearing provision, we aim to raise staff awareness and engagement in a range of learning, teaching, assessment and curriculum design issues through bespoke workshops and activities across the University.
