Title Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Higher Education and Faculty Development “Developing Academics’ Pedagogical Acuity”
Alternative Title Developing Academics’ Pedagogical Acuity
Curator Katsampoxaki-Hodgetts, Kallia
Abstract Editor’s Preface: A notable strength of the Academic Development field is its commitment to academics’ empowerment toward more learning-centred and inclusive teaching learning practices. Working towards constructive synergies and collaborations, we can overcome the challenges faced by all stakeholders in Higher Education and by prioritising reflection through participatory academic development contexts our communities (communities of practice, discourse communities and communities of learning) will grow past inequalities and thrive. In line with this, the first international conference on Higher education pedagogy and Faculty Development at the University of Crete Teaching and Learning Center was held in Rethymnon, Greece on 15-17 September, 2023. It featured 80 presentations from 22 International Universities and 13 different countries. This volume includes 22 selected papers which draw on practical and theoretical explorations of Academic Development in local contexts. This book is divided in five sections so as to showcase a variety of academic development approaches and perspectives. Section one provides a snapshot of debates appearing in the field regarding academic development processes Editor’s Preface like peer observation, micro teaching and reflective and participatory communities of learning and practice through MOOCs. Section two continues to give us a concise account of active learning approaches that involve student engagement strategies and enhance student agency. Section three focuses on student perspectives and attitudes following student-centred interventions. Section four focuses on academics’ views and attitudes, and shares useful insights regarding academics’ needs in terms of student-centred and inclusive practices. Section five sheds light on digital innovations and virtual technologies fostering learning centred approaches in typical and atypical learning contexts. Issues visited at the conference were not limited to the ones presented herein, but they are indicative of academics’ vision and endeavours towards improving higher education learning environments and increasing opportunities for student success.
