I often look over at my colleague Kevin Brace’s blog with great envy when he pulls together posts full of great resources. I think I might have trumped this time with outputs from the Enhancement Themes.
For those of you unaware the Enhancement Themes are planned and directed through the Scottish Higher Education Enhancement Committee (SHEEC), involving:
- the Scottish Funding Council
- Universities Scotland
- QAA Scotland.
- Higher Education Academy.
- NUS Scotland
The themes are designed to “encourage academic and support staff and students to share current good practice and collectively generate ideas and models for innovation in learning and teaching”.
The main outputs from this initiative are a series of enhancement publications. There is a mindboggling amount of great material here. A good starting point is the ‘Overview of the Enhancement Theme 2006-08: The aims, achievements and challenges’ (written by our recent RSC-MP3 contributor Professor Terry Mayes). After this I highly recommend you check out the publications page of the Enhancement Themes website.
