Wales Higher Education Staff Development Network
Group Representative Profile – Graham Lewis
Graham Lewis is the Vice-Chair and SDF representative of the Welsh network, WHESDN (Welsh Higher Education Staff Development Network). Graham has been the Co-ordinator of the Centre for the Development of Staff and Acadenc Practice (CDSAP) at Aberystwyth University, since 2007.
The WHESDN network meets regularly, to share practice, and organises the annual WHESDN/LFHE conference in Cardiff, each December. Developments are frequently collaborative and two programmes deserve special mention:
Four HEIs in Wales have collaborated, for over a decade, in running their HEA accredited post-graduate certificates in teaching in higher education.
On a cross-network basis, five institutions run the SWIMM (South West Institutions Middle-Managers) programme.
