Professional Development and Recognition

Our strategic aim for Professional Development & Recognition is to ensure education staff (including teaching, TEL and professional) are provided with the opportunities, resource, guidance, support, communities, and recognition at all career stages to enable them to offer a world class education and are supported in their individual development and career progression.

We currently offer a wide range of programmes and recognition opportunities and resources.

If you are a member of staff or student you can access more information on our internal pages.

The LTP is for educators who are new to King’s or would like to develop their practice. It is a curriculum of core and selected activities which participants can apply within their own disciplinary contexts. Part One gives a grounding in inclusive curriculum design, learning outcomes associated with significant learning, assessment for learning, supportive environments, activity design and reflective practice. In Part Two, which is self-directed and supported, you apply this knowledge to complete your own selection of activities. Together these bring knowledge, experiences and insights you can discuss in your application for Higher Education Academy recognition.

The GTA Development programme is designed to help graduate teaching assistants become more skilled, knowledgeable, and confident in their teaching roles and responsibilities within King's. We aim to provide a range of learning opportunities to engage and support GTAs as educators who are reflective about their pedagogical practice.

King's Academy supports educators (academic and professional services staff who teach, supervise, assess or support students’ learning) who wish to seek national professional recognition of their teaching at King's through the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

King's Academy, in collaboration with King's Online, Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning and Libraries & Collections, developed a comprehensive programme of synchronous and asynchronous materials to support teaching and learning in an increasingly digital environment including; • Designing Learning • Asynchronous Teaching & Learning • Synchronous Teaching & Learning • Designing Online Assessments • Active Learning in a Physically Distanced Classroom • Student Engagement & Community

Throughout the academic year, King's Academy offers a range of workshops aimed to improve knowledge and skills of research-enhanced pedagogic practices.
