Internationally Recognised Teaching Experience

Syria Programme Updates

Seven more Cara Syria Programme (SP) Fellows have successfully gained Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), bringing the total number of FHEA recipients this year to 19. These include one Senior Fellow (SFHEA), and 5 who were mentored by other successful FHEA SP Fellows to allow the initial drafting of applications in Arabic with Advance HE’s agreement. In addition to formally evidencing prior teaching experience and practice, it provides an important reflection opportunity for all applicants, despite limited English language, as well as enhancing employment outcomes.

Another 16 SP Fellows are currently being supported by the Universities of Kent, Leicester, Reading, and South Wales (USW) to submit in the autumn.

Complementing these efforts is a second online Teaching Methods Series, led by Dr Juliet Millican from the Institute of Development Studies and Dr Luma Tabaa from the University of Kent. It aims to work with both new and more experienced Sham University lecturers, in order to enhance their understanding of modern teaching methods and develop their teaching skills. This second follow-on Teaching Methods Series responds to popular demand and was launched on 25th June 2024.
