ALPINE Successes

Since 2016/2017 the following university colleagues have gained Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) through either ALPINE (Accredited Learning, Professional development, and Innovation in Education) or direct with the HEA in order to support the implementation of the ALPINE framework within the university.

ALPINE is the university’s new framework for the recognition of excellent practice in learning and teaching, supporting learning and teaching, and educational leadership in higher education. ALPINE is aligned to the UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (UKPSF), and provides the opportunity for colleagues to gain recognition as an Associate Fellow, Fellow or Senior Fellow of the HEA through an internal recognition process. ALPINE also offers mentoring support for colleagues who would like to apply directly to the HEA for recognition as a Principal.

One important requirement on the ALPINE portfolio route is that some of the evidence an individual puts forward in their application should take the form of digital artefacts that can be used to share good educational practice and resources across UHI via either the uhitoolkit, or alternatively (for certain kinds of artefact) the Learning and Teaching Academy website.  Digital artefacts could take the form of reusable educational resources (e.g. interactivities, online materials, assignment specifications, activity designs), screencasts or podcasts that capture or describe good practice, or ‘teaching tips’ style articles that can be shared online.
