This conference will examine next steps for the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) and the measurement of teaching excellence in higher education.


There will be a keynote session with Graeme Rosenberg, Head of TEF, Office for Students, ahead of the launch of the OfS consultation on the future TEF framework.


The discussion takes place with questions around remote and blended teaching and learning, and continued calls for a complete resumption of in-person studies.
