Abstract

This study explores how the process of applying for Senior or Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) supports reflection on leadership practice and development. Such reflection may utilise a number of resources, prompts and artefacts, which support reflection in and reflection on practice. Academics ranging from Programme Leaders to Vice Chancellors with Senior or Principal Fellowship recognition participated in an online survey and a small number were also interviewed face-to-face. The results suggest that the requirement to reflect on one’s own leadership strengthens self-awareness and effectiveness as a leader, thus supporting and encouraging excellent education practice at personal, institutional and sector level.
