In recognition of the changing shape of Quality Assurance in the sector, and the government’s plans to introduce a Teaching Excellence Framework, and the 2016 University Teaching conference will address the issue of defining and measuring “quality” in university education.
Our first plenary speaker, Professor Annette Cashmore, will address the challenge of defining quality and evaluating the various proxies that are used in attempts to show evidence of the quality of teaching, teachers, or learning in HE. Our second plenary speaker, Professor Gina Wisker, will address the scholarship of teaching and its value for practitioners.
The remainder of the day will be devoted to discussion on how concepts of quality relate to our own practice in planning and undertaking teaching, collecting and using student feedback, and evidencing quality for reward and recognition.
