HEA Yearbook 2016–2021

The HEA Yearbook (PDF, 1.1 MB), published annually, provides an overview of the HEA Fellows who have achieved their credentials over the last year. We take this opportunity to recognise all those who work to mentor, assess and lead the program. These fellows would not be credentialled without their ongoing support.
Everyone listed in these Yearbooks has achieved recognition of teaching expertise by colleagues at UQ and internationally by Advance HE.

Fostering the community

There are several ways you can continue to engage with the HEA community after Fellowship recognition. For example, you can become:

  • an application reviewer,
  • a mentor, or
  • an affiliate practitioner.

You can also participate in conferences committees or become a member of the College of Peer Observers. All these opportunities may be formalised as part of the ‘Service and Citizenship Domain’ of your Academic Annual Performance Development (APD) process.
