The University of Southampton
Professional Development

The professional development teams work in partnership with Faculties, Professional Services and students to offer and signpost a range of learning and development activities and resources, including face-to-face courses, bespoke events, online learning modules, action learning sets and recommended reading. 

During 2016, a review of ILIaD concluded that the continuing provision of effective and sustainable support for staff development and technology-enhanced education would be best addressed by embedding the functions previously based in ILIaD within iSolutions, the Library, the Faculty of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences, and Human Resources.   

If you have a question or require support in any of these areas, please contact either HR; your Business Relationship Manager (iSolutions); Academic Engagement Librarian (Library) (click on the Contact Us drop down at the top and select your Faculty) or the newly formed Centre for Higher Education Practice and they will be able to redirect you as appropriate.
