In this presentation the implications and opportunities for the professional development of HE teachers will be explored linked to the outputs of a phenomenographic study in which the collaborative open learning experience in informal cross-institutional development courses was studied in depth and brought new insights. The findings of this study revealed two distinct collaborative learning patterns, selective and immersive collaboration, and show that open and collaborative and cross-boundary practices and communities motivate and empower academics to engage, change and often transform their practices as a result of their engagement in such initiatives. How can academics and institutions harness such alternative free-range professional development practices and what could this mean for individual institutions, their professional development offer and for learning and teaching in higher education more widely? Come along to find out.
