Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

The author of this resource states “the purpose of this handbook is to provide a free educational resource for HECA Colleges to use in the education and training of those who teach in their colleges and who are new to teaching, those who have limited experience, or, alternatively, who are new to an aspect of teaching. It builds on the National Professional Development Framework for all Staff who Teach in Higher Education (National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, 2016). This handbook is designed for new tutors/lecturers/teachers/ educationalists or more experienced teachers who wish to reflect on their teaching, learning, and assessment. In particular, it is directed at part-time or contract workers, who are important contributors from other industries; their role as industry worker as well as teacher/practitioner in higher education is acknowledged”.
