This module is for academics and academic-related professionals who teach or support learning, and/or undertake research/scholarship in a research-intensive university. Drawing on relevant research, and your own professional experience, this module will locate your professional practice and development within the wider context of UK higher education policy, education and research, as well as the more local institutional contexts and priorities which will shape your professional career development at the University of Exeter. It is designed to complement your work and to develop a supportive community amongst academics who are relatively new to the University.

There are no pre-requisites, but it is intended that you would take this module alongside module EFPM902 (Creative Effective Learning in Higher Education) as part of the Academic Professional Programme (Apprenticeship PGCert) or Academic Professional part-time pathway (PGCert).
