​Mastering teaching excellence

3 Jan

After a cracking Christmas and a lively New Year, Phil and I are back on the road starting our working endeavours in January with a trip to Plymouth for Pauline Kneale’s Masters’ Level Conference on January 8th, as well as some workshops with the faculty of Health, Midwifery and Social Work on improving assessment, the presentation for which will follow here: streamlined-assesment-Plymouth-Jan-2016-w-2.pptx (498 downloads)

On Thursday 7th January I will be convening at Plymouth University a second pop-up consultation meeting for National Teaching Fellows on our response to the Government Green paper which is due in on 15th January. Any National Teaching Fellows who wish to contribute to the discussion can do so either by attending in person, or by sending to me and Pratap Rughani at the University of the Arts your brief comments in relation to questions 2 to 11.

After the submission of our response we will be targeting MPs and peers known to have an interest in Higher Education with a briefer version of our comments, so again Pratap and I would welcome your suggestions (particularly personal contacts) of those likely to champion our cause in the Commons and the Lords, so we can influence decisions on how to recognize and reward  teaching excellence.

En route home from Plymouth I will be working at Sheffield University on January 13th on Getting Published on Teaching and Learning, and the handout will be here: streamlined-assesment-Plymouth-Jan-2016-w-1.pptx (1325 downloads)  Sheffield workshop 2
