(image by Debbie Baff @debbaff)

The SALT CPD Framework is pedagogically driven and underpinned by evidence. It is mapped to the HEA UKPSF and will incorporate Open Digital Badges where possible.

Its aims are to:

  1. Support all staff to continually improve the quality of teaching
  2. Offer a programme of professional development activities for all staff
  3. Set expectations in relation to professional development
  4. Develop and support a wide range and broad definition of CPD
  5. Improve the quality of the student learning and outcomes for students

It is made up of the following main elements:

Open Door Teaching

Open Door Teaching


Open door teaching is a CPD approach pioneered at Curtin University in Western Australia, which is now being developed here at Swansea.

It is a collegial approach to sharing excellent teaching practice, by simply watching good teachers teach and talking to them about it afterwards.
