In July 2012 a group of GEES academics interested in education got together to discuss how we could support each other in our professional and career development and THE (Teaching-focused in Higher Education) GEES network was established. We are a network which exists online (using LinkedIn and this webpage) and through meetings. We met in Manchester in 2014 where we had a writing retreat and a workshop that covered HEA accreditation, funding and publication of pedagogic research, mentoring, and career progression. We met in September 2015 before the RGS annual conference. If are interested in meeting in 2016 we would love to hear from you.
Our aim is to connect people in order to discuss experiences, share common challenges, and strategies for professional development. If you are employed on a teaching-only or teaching-focused contract or are interested in ‘teaching-focused’ discussions and would like to join our online network search for ‘THE GEES network’ on LinkedIn
