Course Leader Network

Purpose of the proposed group

This group will specifically focus on what it means to be a course leader and to lead course development and the course team from an academic perspective.   The primary aim of the group is to develop expertise in this area by sharing best practice, and developing a sense of community and identity as a course leader.

Objectives of the proposed group

    • To create a University wide mechanism for peer support.
    • To define academic leadership at Hallam in the context of course leadership.
    • To scope best practice within Hallam and across the HE sector in the UK and internationally.
    • To develop resources and create development opportunities to support course leaders in undertaking this aspect of their role.
