Academic Development, Education and the Promotion of Teaching
The ADEPT programme encompasses the work of the Educational Development team in supporting, promoting and disseminating good practice in teaching and learning within all departments at QMUL.
The ADEPT website is a collection of relevant, practical and useful resources developed to provide inspiration and guidance for all colleagues involved in teaching at QMUL. Whether you are a new member of academic staff seeking to extend your knowledge or a more experienced teacher looking for a fresh perspective, there’s something here for you.
Want to have a look around? Search from the homepage using your preferred keyword or by one of our eight themes (use the drop down menu), and curate your own results using the Topic, Theme and other tags as you go.
The website is divided into eight themes, each with a curator from the Educational Development team at QMUL. They are: Assessment and Feedback; Career Development; Curriculum Design; Employability & Graduate Attributes; International; Leadership; Student Support; and Teaching Support.
We also maintain a team blog, in which you can read insights from members of the team on current events and themes in higher education.
If you’d like to hear more from us or receive updates on a particular theme, sign up to our mailing list.
The ADEPT programme offers training and development to all those involved in supporting student learning. We have a taught route, which encompasses qualifications such as the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice and the Certificate in Learning and Teaching, along with flexible points-based routes and a direct route to fellowship. All our programmes lead to some level of ADEPT Fellowship, which is linked to fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
We also encourage those who already have experience and training to gain accreditation through the Teaching Recognition Project, set up to ensure that all QMUL staff are recognised for the work they do in supporting student learning. The Teaching Recognition Project aims to help staff apply for HEA Fellowship at the appropriate level for them, and welcome inquiries here.
