Apply to join the new CMBE CPD Review Board

CMBEs are invited to apply to join our new CPD Review Board and help shape the programming of our community-led events and workshops. This new Board is being constituted as part of our ethos to embed the CMBE community in our work. The purpose of the Board is to peer-review and approve CPD event submissions and provide guidance on themes for future submissions for the future programme of activity.

Not only is this a great way to contribute to the CMBE community of practice and support the development of other educators, you will also be able to put the time you commit to the Board towards your annual CPD submission under the ‘community contribution’ category.

We’re looking for applications from educators who have experience of delivering developmental activities in teaching practice, pedagogy and/or leadership in learning and teaching.

Purpose of the Board and time commitment

The purpose of the Board is to peer-review and approve CPD event submissions and provide guidance on themes for future submissions for the future programme of activity.

We anticipate the Board will meet 3 times annually (normally online). Submissions papers will be provided to members in advance of the meetings, with the meetings used to ratify decisions, consider improvements in the process, and set the themes for future activities. Depending on the volume of submissions the Board may decide to divide into smaller groups to review submissions against specific themes. We anticipate that members will review between 3-5 submissions on average each at each review round.

Membership is for a two-year term, with an option to extend for a further term.

Purpose of the Board:

  • Make decisions on the submissions for new workshops.
  • Provide constructive feedback for CABS to share with submitters.
  • Reflect on how to build on events that have run since the last meeting.
  • Consider a) themes for future programming, and b) delivery formats.

As a new Board, the time commitment and purpose may evolve over time.

Who should apply?

Up to 9 places are available. Applications from individuals at all stages of their career are welcome.

Applicants must be CMBEs and will be considered against the following criteria:

  • Individuals with experience of supporting the development of educational practice of others. Applications will need to show evidence of being involved in relevant projects.
  • Diversity of individuals. The Chartered ABS is committed to building diversity and inclusion, and applications from BAME individuals are particularly encouraged.
  • Diversity of institutions (including geographic location and type of institution i.e. pre- or post-1992; teaching or research intensive).
