Exploring Expertise in Teaching in Higher Education, 16-23 October 2020

Dr Helen King, convenor of the HEPPP research network, hosted an international event with contributions on the theme of her main research area: the characteristics of expertise in teaching in higher education. Over 500 people registered to participate in the live and asynchronous sessions. The event was hugely successful, triggering a potential new discourse for learning and teaching in higher education. An overview of the key themes arising from the symposium is provided on the HEPPP blog.

Watch the recordings of the live presentations and asynchronous videos on YouTube. A compilation of the contributions has been published by Routledge/SEDA, "Developing Expertise for Teaching in Higher Education".
