Food for Thought: Teaching Excellence Framework

Posted by ac652 at Dec 05, 2016 04:33 PM |
The next Food for Thought session, open to all staff, will explore the implications of TEF for the University.

The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) is an attempt to use a range of metrics to evaluate the quality of teaching and student learning in higher education.

The core measures being used initially will focus on undergraduate education and be based on the National Student Survey and retention and employment statistics. On this basis universities will be classified as Gold, Silver or Bronze and, be allowed to raise their fees in line with inflation based on that classification.

In this Food for Thought session taking place on Thursday 15 December at 1pm, Professor Jon Scott, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Student Experience, will discuss the way the TEF is currently set up, proposals for its future development, and the implications for the University.

He will also explore the new questions that are being introduced into the NSS in Spring 2017 and how departments should be preparing for them.
