Learning and teaching in higher education has become multi-dimensional with new technologies and emerging academics. Support through on-job courses for such developing teachers within higher institutions of learning is key. Participation in such courses should be encouraged and recognized both internally and externally. But what experiences will the participants on such courses make and will participation really impact positively on them? In this paper, I present my reflections on the SEDA values 2, 3 and 6 as part of learning and teaching development for higher education in the UK.\ud \ud Keywords\ud Learning and Teaching, Higher Education, Emerging Teachers, Learning Communities
