Are you confused about Teaching Excellence Framework?
Need to know more about the TEF and how it might involve you?
The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) is set to transform the higher education landscape by promoting excellence in teaching and student learning. Starting with institutional assessment currently underway and extending in future years to discipline-level and postgraduate taught provision, the TEF will shortly touch every part of higher education.
The TEF is designed to measure and promote quality teaching, drive up standards, encourage student choice and promote parity of esteem between teaching and research. With a mixture of metrics and institutional submissions, TEF assessments will be influenced at a basic level by those individuals who interact with students on a day to day basis and by those developing and introducing innovative approaches to student learning, assessment and employability.
The Teaching Excellence Framework and Me workshop is designed to provide academics of all levels with an overview of the system of assessment, including the planned institutional submission. The workshop will explore how discipline-level assessment could operate and the value this may bring to the sector, together with examining the role that programme leaders and managers will play in improving quality and preparing for TEF submissions.
The Teaching Excellence Framework and Me workshop will cover:
- The TEF at institutional, discipline and postgraduate level providing up-to-date information on proposals for assessments;
- The role of programme teams and individual academics in TEF – “what TEF means for me”;
- Inputting into the institutional submission – important considerations about impact;
- Sharing good practice about how to influence key metrics.
