This seminar event is aimed at anyone currently working in higher education as it explores the impact of the Teaching Excellence Framework on individual lecturers, students, partners and managers.
The TEF has a wide and growing variety of policy objectives as part of the Government’s marketisation agenda, including: to better inform students’ choice about what and where to study; to raise the esteem of teaching (and recognise and reward excellence in teaching); and to widen participation. This seminar will aim to unpick many of the assumptions behind the TEF and ponder: ‘what next?’.
We have attracted nine excellent papers from colleagues working across the sector in a variety of roles who offer different perspectives on a range of issues related to TEF, which we have broadly organised into the following themes: the impact of TEF on diversity, staff and on institutions themselves. In particular we hope the seminar will give delegates the chance to explore and discuss the impact of TEF on pedagogies and specific institutional behaviours pertaining to quality and development.
The final session of the day will bring our contributors together for a Panel Discussion focused around the main theme: TEF: what next ….? and chaired by Amanda French and Colin McCaig
