Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA) is the professional association for staff and educational developers in the United Kingdom, promoting innovation and good practice in higher education.

SEDA's activities are clustered into five main areas:

  • Professional development
  • Conferences and events
  • Publications
  • Research
  • Services to members

Professional recognition[edit]

  • Fellow of the Staff and Educational Association (FSEDA) - is for those with experience in academic staff and educational development.
  • Associate Fellow of the Staff and Educational Association (AFSEDA) - is for those newer to the field, and for those for whom staff and educational development plays a part within their wider academic role.

SEDA accredits (recognises) professional development programs for all types of faculty and staff working in higher education institutions in the UK, and a few outside the UK. It does this through its Professional Development Framework which includes 16 "named awards" aimed at different roles or activities, which have different "specialist outcomes" but share common professional values and developmental outcomes. SEDA recognition is a collegiate, developmental process. Details of the awards and the process can be found on the web site.
