The research network was launched at UWE’s Festival of Learning in June 2020. It’s purpose is to bring together colleagues across UWE, and beyond, who are interested in research related to higher education pedagogies, policy and practice, including the evaluation of teaching. Through providing opportunities for networking and collaboration, the HEPPP research network aims to support UWE’s Strategy 2030 in developing a practice-led, evidence-informed approach to its own higher education ambitions.
The network’s MS Teams space now has over 60 members. Funding opportunities, including UWE’s own Pedagogic Projects, are being promoted through the HEPPP website and a series of writing retreats have been set up. It’s first major event, the Expertise Symposium, was a resounding success, and more events and activities are being planned as the network gradually picks up momentum.
Contact the convenor, Helen King, for more information about the network, to join the Teams space or offer a contribution to the blog or series of activities.
