Comments from experienced staff HEA Application?! Its one of those things you do unwillingly- realise it was worth it- and will others to do it! I began my application for HEA accreditation longer ago than I care to recall. It just seemed like too much effort, between the teaching and research activities, to complete, edit, reflect...and find two referees. But when I completed the process, to have others acknowledge my work, made this one of my most life enhancing experiences. Going through the process of writing my HEA Fellowship application made me reflect on my journey, discipline my writing and realise how far I had come in understanding my teaching and learning.
