Dr Matthew Williamson from University of Glasgow will discuss what universities mean by 'excellent teaching'. The development of a ‘Teaching Excellence Framework’ is the latest attempt to define and measure what makes for quality learning at university.
There are already a number of measures of ‘excellent teaching’. For instance, the National Teaching Fellowships Scheme “celebrates excellent practice and outstanding achievement” (HEA, 2015). But what do universities mean by ‘excellent teaching’? What do students think?
Drawing on his own research and his work with a number of institutions, Dr Williamson will outline some ways in which we as educators can both recognise and embody excellent teaching.
Lunch will be served at 12pm.
