Event description

Description

In part one John will outline an approach to capturing HEness in the transition from FE level work to the HE level work. Two key questions will be addressed: what is the relationship between scholarship and higher education, and is there a distinct form of scholarship associated with College HE? John will then go on to outline the conceptual underpinning for the national catalyst project on embedding scholarship in college higher education, and how its main output, the Scholarship Framework, was put together. Part one will finish by demonstrating how the framework can be used to enhance all aspects of scholarship in college HE, including curriculum development, quality enhancement, professional development and student engagement.

In part two John will be focusing on student scholarly activity, based on the findings of: Healey, M., Jenkins, A. and Lea, J. (2014)Developing research-based curricula in college-based higher education. York: HEA. This is a free download available from the HEA website (see address below). It will not be necessary to have read this document in advance of the workshop. Part two will provide an opportunity for participants to explore both the opportunities and threats posed by developing research mindedness amongst college based HE students.
