As mentioned previously I have become interested in E-learning. In terms of professional development I hope to do more work/learning in this area. Whilst I feel that I have made quite a lot of progress in introducing e-learning/technology into my teaching I still have a long way to go. I feel that I need additional training with respect to of e-learning technologies and training on how to optimise different multimedia presentation for different formats. As previously stated this corresponds with the HEFCE and HEA 10 year plan for the implementation of technology into teaching.In addition, I feel that I also need to develop my personal tutor skills. This is an important and at times underappreciated aspect of teaching that I need to develop additional skills in as all lecturers are allocated personal tutees. This corresponds with the SEDA guideline with respect to student support on academic and pastoral issues and the HEA framework with respect to student support and guidance.One key aspect of my professional development that I hope to achieve within the next 12-18 months is the completion of my Ph.D. This links back to the learning agreement in which I listed submission of my thesis as one of my desired outcomes. In addition it also fits in well with the HEA professional practice framework with respect to the ‘integration of research and professional activities with teaching and supporting learning’. I feel that completion of my Ph.D will be invaluable in fulfilling this aspect of the HEA framework and believe that this is the one of the primary reasons that a Ph.D has now become an essential pre-requisite for institutions wishing to appoint new lecturers.
