Edinburgh Napier University: ENroute Yearbook 2016 Edition - Page 26

ENroute Yearbook 2015-16 A Final Word from the University ENroute Lead It is an absolute privilege to be leading ENroute for the University and I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who has participated in ENroute this past year. This includes all qualification route students who completed one of our two programmes and their Personal Development Tutors, our experiential route participants and their mentors, and, of course, the reviewers. I have gained hugely from working with colleagues from the Schools and Professional Services teams. Together we have built the ENroute team and it truly has become a learning community. If you are interested - or know of someone who may be interested - in gaining Fellowship please visit the ENroute staff intranet pages. The ENroute team will be delighted to offer guidance as to the best route to take. Dr Fiona Smart, University Lead for ENroute, Senior Teaching Fellow The Department of Learning and Teaching Enhancement proudly run the Postgraduate Certificate in Learning, Teaching and Assessment Practice in Higher Education (LTAP) and the innovative Masters in Blended and Online Education (BOE). Successfully completing either of these would lead to accreditation by the Higher Education Academy at D2 level (Fellow). In addition, we offer staff the opportunity to gain Fellowship via the experiential route. Adding dialogue as an option within this route has further strengthened it. Of note, Edinburgh Napier University is being recognised in the UK and further afield as a leader in its use of dialogue to facilitate Fellowship claims. In closing our first yearbook, I want to acknowledge that while ENroute exists to enable individuals to gain Fellowship, it does much more than this because it encourages us to keep talking about learning, teaching and assessment among all of the other priorities we have to manage. Consequently, it enriches us all and importantly enhances the student experience across every programme in the University. Dr Fiona Smart University Lead for ENroute, Senior Teaching Fellow 25
