SEDA: call for papers and webinars on wellbeing

SEDA is a professional association for staff and educational developers in the UK "promoting innovation and good practice in higher education". Firstly, it has a call for proposals for its (online, 6-7 May 2021) spring conference Brighter Future - Opportunities for Educational Change, with a proposal deadline of 29th January 2021. The three themes are: (1) What have we learned from over a year of the ‘new abnormal’ in optimising the student experience (e.g. through course design, student support); (2) How are we applying what we have learned in these, and other areas of educational change, to the design of the University Experience for the future? (3) Reimagining how we engage in educational change to ensure the most positive student experience. More info at

Secondly, SEDA is running 3 wellbeing workshops, one (on 11 February 2021) focusing on learners' wellbeing, one (on 9 March 2021) on staff (which in the UK is a term which includes faculty), and (on 21 April 2021) one on wellbeing of educational developers. They cost £35 each for non members, less for SEDA members. You can register for all 3 here and for the educational developers' one (which I think should also be of interest to librarians) individual registration is here
