THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Following the release of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) year 2 results, this timely seminar will look at the next steps for reforming and developing the framework, as well as future priorities for its implementation in universities. It is also timed to follow the TEF entering the third year of its implementation, and the granting of Royal Assent to the Higher Education and Research Act.
With a key component of TEF’s next phase expected to be the development of subject level pilots, delegates will discuss the possible composition of pilots, together with subject case studies and how the TEF can be developed to demonstrate diversity across the teaching provision at UK universities. They will also consider potential challenges of delivering this stage to UK HEIs, such as the impact of the subject categorisation system on ratings and how a good institutional score in year 2 might dissuade institutions from partaking in year 3.
Further sessions will assess the recently released results from year 2 of the exercise, discussing the current composition of framework metrics and areas for potential reform and development. Specifically, sessions will focus on measuring student feedback, gauging student and staff perspectives on the TEF more broadly, and best practice in measuring learning gain. Additional discussions will also focus on delivering year 3 of the framework, with a keynote contribution from Graeme Rosenberg, TEF Manager, HEFCE.
