Research and Teaching


Resources and training courses offered to help your personal development in this area include:

Academic probation advisers

This workshop will cover best practice for academic probation advisers and introduce the College guidance on probation supervision, including teaching and learning via the Education Development team. It will also include the sharing of best practice from current advisers.

Academic promotion

Two workshops for those considering applying for academic promotion. The sessions will look at the way the application process proceeds, criteria for promotion and material that needs to be prepared.

E-learning support

A set of resources for staff who are interested in realising the benefits of learning technologies in the delivery, assessment, and administration of their courses. e-Learning can be described as learning activities facilitated and supported through the use of a broad range of information and communication technologies. Such technologies include Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs), online submission tools, e-assessment services, audience voting/participation systems (Clickers), and social networking tools (blogging, microblogging, social bookmarking).

Educational Development training

Educational Development provides guidance on curriculum development, and offers professional development activities for all teaching staff at Royal Holloway. These include the CAPITAL (Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice in Teaching and Learning) and inSTIL (developing the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively support student learning in HE) programmes, which are accredited with the Higher Education Academy.

Library support

Library Services offer a number of support services to researchers, covering open access, research data, copyright and other resources, including Pure, the College's research information system, which can be used by researchers to create an online profile and record their publications, projects and research activities.

The Advance Programme (Previously known as the On Track programme)

The Advance Programme is a series of workshops designed to support the College's research activity, by developing leadership and providing opportunities to share expertise in this area. They are open to all research and academic staff.

Research impact

Research impact is about making your work useful to people, organisations and society at large. It comes in many forms and is quickly becoming a major part of the academic landscape, including growing requirements on impact from research funders and the UK government. These events will equip you with the knowledge and tools to develop the impact of your research outside academia. They're suitable for academics at any stage of their career, whether you're looking for a refresher or are new to the topic.
