First university partners meeting, February 2016
On Thursday 25th February 2016, representatives from ten of the partner universities met at the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) in London. They were joined by a small group of individuals with particular expertise in the evaluation and recognition of university teaching, many of whom acted as external reviewers during the development of the draft framework.
The meeting aimed to:
  • establish an international community of dialogue between individuals and institutions striving to improve the recognition of university teaching
  • discuss experiences and share ideas for reforming university promotion systems, as well as provide specific feedback about the Career Framework for University Teaching
  • pave the way for broader cross-institutional agreement about the recognition of teaching, such that these achievements could be ‘portable’ and recognised between universities in a similar way to research achievements
