Michael Snowden, Rob McSherry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The chapter explores the pedagogical basis of establishing excellence in educational practice. This is achieved by: exploring what excellence means and its relevance to higher educational practice; applying excellence to pedagogical approaches in particular (heutagogy) and offering ways of how to measure and demonstrate excellence within the curriculum. The chapter is based on a workshop presentation delivered at the HEA York, UK, in March 2014 entitled ‘Excellence within the curriculum a lesson from EPAS’ at a Higher Education Academy (HEA) sponsored event exploring ‘Community Development and Engagement’.
