  • Higher Education Academy New to Teaching Toolkit for staff who are starting out on, or returning to, a higher education teaching career. Search the Resources website by search term: NTT Toolkit Resources
  • Geoff Petty’s (author of Teaching Today) website is a bit school-centric in parts, but useful for general teaching advice and resources:
  • Directory of Open Access Journals has a range of open access journals across all subjects, including Education, which can be browsed or searched (these journals and articles do tend to come up in an iFind search anyway, but it’s useful to know about this:
  • ERIC, American based but lots of useful UK content on there, some of which is full-text, some may be accessible via iFind:
  • HEA Resources (research and papers):
  • EducatiON_LINE (from the British Education Index) – this is just an archive now since Ebsco took over the management and subscription of BEI, but this freely available resource was maintained 1986-2013, so it’s still fairly current. Good source for full-text conference papers, especially from the British Educational Research Association.
