The Teaching Excellence Framework: control and freedom in 21st century HE

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

The UK government’s proposal to implement a ‘teaching excellence framework’ (TEF) has re-ignited the debate regarding the purpose and scope of university teaching. This workshop will explore the notion of teaching excellence from a variety of voices whose views will shape how teaching is measured and valued in Higher Education. The workshop is timely as those in the sector seek to understand the ontological and epistemological notions underpinning its teaching. Excellence, as we shall see, means many things to different people. This workshop offers a unique contribution by placing these subject positions side by side and guiding the participants to understand the complex terrain from which the TEF is foregrounded. Thornton (2014) confirms the need for alignment of strategic aims of universities and teacher practice in order for any real differences to be observed and, as such, the workshop explores issues at the macro, meso and micro level.
