ADEPT Continuing Professional Development Framework for Educators

Adelaide Development Program for Educators and Professionals who Teach (ADEPT)

The University of Adelaide offers the ADEPT Professional Development Program to provide colleagues with the opportunity to further develop their capabilities and underpinning knowledge, skills and values to create and deliver contemporary, student-driven and collaborative learning environments. ADEPT enables colleagues to effectively translate research-based and inclusive teaching practices into discipline specific learning environments. The program will offer colleagues opportunities to engage in scholarly activity by belonging and contributing to scholarly communities of practice. It will provide a platform that will help with the navigation of the Australian higher education landscape with a particular focus on the strategic directions of the University of Adelaide.
