Senior Academic Developers Group

​The Senior Academic Developers aims to connect key institutional leaders in teaching, learning and innovative educational practices across U21 universities in order to promote collaboration, share good practice and combine resources with the common objectives of enhancing student learning in research-intensive universities. 

The group includes the Senior Academic Developer / Director of Teaching and Learning Development (or equivalent) from each member institution. To meet our aims we convene throughout the year for open house events, workshops and symposia to share best practice, make connections and expand opportunities across our membership. 

Co-Chairs of the Group:

  • Sarah King, University of Birmingham
  • Jon Turner, University of Edinburgh
  • Aine Galvin, University College Dublin
