Most of the Higher Education Academy Subject Centres offer small grants
for pedagogic developments and research. For BMAF these often then feed
into magazine articles, conference papers, contributions to workshops,
special interest groups, peer-reviewed papers, online resources,
chapters in a case study publication, etc. Details at
although unfortunately the submission date for the 2009-2010 BMAF grants
has just passed.
There are also opportunities for individuals to contribute to Subject
Centre projects - some of ours recently have related to support for
part-time staff, development needs of new academic staff, e-learning and
overseas students. http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/business/ourwork/projects
Such activities can obviously feed back into their school and university
as well as being shared nationally - in some cases internationally.

Subject: developing SoTL post-PGCertHE
We are thinking about how we can maintain and encourage colleagues'
engagement with scholarship and pedagogic research after they have
finished their PGCertHE and would be very interested to hear what others
are doing and what is working.
One idea we are considering is providing support from the Teaching and
Learning Development Unit to encourage colleagues to write short case
studies on their practice which can then be shared through an online
forum, disseminated via our newsletter and perhaps presented at
conferences or published elsewhere.
I would very much like to hear from anyone who has tried something
similar or another approach that has been effective.
