Through engagement with this TEL toolkit and active consideration of what and how you use technology to facilitate learning and teaching, you will be aligning your practice to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). The UKPSF underpins a sector wide approach to ensuring the quality of teaching and learning support, and this includes the expectation that staff are committed to continuing professional development (CPD) and evaluation of their pedagogic practice. This is important as evidence of engagement in developing technology enhanced learning can help staff gain recognition as Fellows of the Higher Education Academy through the YSJ CPD Framework, ‘Recognising Academic Practice’, which is aligned to the UKPSF.
