Dr Stephen Haddelsey
I am the Learning Gain Project Manager in the Educational Development and Enhancement Unit (EDEU), at University of Lincoln
The Learning Gain Project is one of 12 projects funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). Its purpose is to pilot various mechanisms, including student self-assessment and situational judgement tests, in order to determine which methods are best suited to track the development in a student’s ‘learning gain’ during their three years of undergraduate study. HEFCE defines Learning Gain as the ‘distance travelled’ by students during their studies, as demonstrated through an improvement in knowledge, skills, work-readiness and personal development between two points in time.
I am also an historian of British Antarctic exploration. My last two books focused on major expeditions of the ‘post-Heroic’ phase of polar exploration, c. 1922-62.
Dr Haddelsey collaborates with ReBSA in projects relating to antarctic expeditions.
