For quite a while I’ve been interested in better ways of recognising and rewarding teaching in higher education.
I thought you might like to look at an updated version of a talk I gave at City University London a couple of years ago (Recognising and rewarding 2011). It’s based on work I did in Australia in the 1990s and in the UK in 2008-9. It also incorporates the work of Annette Cashmore from the GENIE CETL based at Leicester.
The last part of the presentation offers some practical ideas about how to assess teaching performance for promotion. Unlike many other approaches, this one emphasises the need to assess teaching in a way that’s consistent with how we evaluate research performance. I’ve drawn on my experience of doing this for real at Sydney University (1999-2004) and in the 2008 RAE.
