HEA Fellowship : Video Resources
Resources for writing the HEA fellowship application
Colleagues who plan to apply for Higher Education Academy (HEA) fellowship may find the MOOC on University Teaching useful in getting yourself familiar with the pedagogical vocabulary. It is developed at CETL and led by Dr. Lily Min Zeng. It discusses a wide range of teaching and learning topics that are directly relevant to the dimensions of the Professional Standard Framework (PSF) proposed by HEA. Below is a table which maps the topics in the MOOC and the dimensions and subcategories under each dimension of the PSF to facilitate the writing of fellowship applications among HKU colleagues. HKU portal login will be requested before you can watch the videos.
There are four important things I would like you to know before using this learning package.
This MOOC was not designated for HEA fellowship application. It was designed before CETL’s endeavor to facilitate HKU colleagues’ application for HEA fellowship. It targets early career or would-be university teachers. So when I structured the curriculum, I had a different framework in mind. So:
- Colleagues are strongly encouraged to watch the beginning of the videos, where the intended learning outcomes were stated, in order to choose the contents that are relevant to your writing plan.
- The table below is organized according to the PSF dimensions. As some videos involve contents relevant to more than one dimension, you will see some videos listed under multiple PSF dimensions.
- The videos in this MOOC are structured to support the completion of an online certificate. Some videos (majorly in the first four modules) included many interviews from experts, teachers and students. If you are looking for the conclusions only, you may go directly to the end of those videos to hear the summaries from the instructor.
- While I’ve tried my best to map the videos with the relevant dimensions and subcategories in PSF, you may find that some videos are not perfectly dedicated to the labelled themes. They provide some relevant discussions in the videos instead. The reason is, as I mentioned earlier, this MOOC was not designed based on PSF. However, as it discusses various aspects about teaching and learning in higher education and provide resource for those who need to retrieve the relevant vocabulary for the writing of their fellowship applications.
