HEA Fellowships

HEA Fellowships demonstrate a personal and institutional commitment to professionalism in learning and teaching in higher education.

Across four categories, from Associate to Principal, Fellowship provides individuals with recognition of their practice, impact and leadership of teaching and learning. HEA Fellowships are embedded in the UK and have been adopted by increasing numbers of higher education institutions globally, from the Americas to Australasia. There are over 124,000 HEA fellows across the world.

JIUHE Fellowship Pathways

Teaching at JIU is a collaborative, multidisciplinary activity and HEA Fellowships are a key way to recognise all staff who design, deliver, enable or lead teaching and learning at JIU, including both professional and academic roles. Fellowships are organised around the Professional Standards Framework (PSF) areas of activity, core knowledge and professional values. These guide staff to reflect on their professional learning activities and also to help identify areas of practice that can be used for evidence for recognition of teaching and learning.

JIU provides two pathways to help staff to reach the goal of HEA Fellowship:

  • the Graduate Certificate Higher Education Learning & Teaching (FHEA)
  • JIUHE Fellowship Reflective Practice Pathway (AFHEA, FHEA, SFHEA)

The Community of HEA Fellows at JIU

JIU now has more than 60 academic and professional staff, who have been acknowledged as leaders of learning and teaching.
