chapter  28
Enhancing personal practice: Establishing teaching and learning credentials
WithHeather Fry, Steve Ketteridge
Pages 16

The focus of this chapter is on early career academics. In the UK, in most disciplines and universities, this means those who have a doctorate and hope to have a career in higher education. They may be working as (postdoctoral) researchers or as lecturers; the latter will be known in some institutions as ‘probationary lecturers’. However, there are many variants of employment, with a multiplicity of patterns, so there will be others to whom this chapter is also applicable, including some more senior academics who want to have formal recognition of their teaching expertise, and in some disciplines others still taking a Ph.D.
