The TEF acknowledges that “there is no one broadly accepted definition of teaching excellence” and that metrics of student satisfaction, retention rates and employability are proxies for teaching quality. The HE sector needs to develop an evidence base for what teaching excellence means and where agreements and discrepancies lie between those who have an interest in quality of teaching. Four main groups were interviewed at the University of Westminster, individually or in focus groups: students, academics, senior management and alumni. Recordings were transcribed and evaluated to identify similarities and differences in their views of what makes a good teacher. This session will present results from the project and encourage a discussion regarding widening the database to generate a large evidence base.
