14th July 2016, Manchester Conference Centre, Manchester
In late 2015 the Government published its Higher Education Green Paper “Fulfilling our Potential: Teaching Excellence, Social Mobility and Student Choice”, which constitutes the biggest changes to higher education in a generation. The aim is to introduce a Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) to reshape the higher education landscape and ensure students are at its heart.
At this conference you will explore how to raise teaching standards, provide a greater focus on graduate employability, widen participation in higher education and open up the sector to new high-quality entrants. This is an exciting new venture for higher education providers of all kinds working in partnership with employers and professional bodies. UK Universities have an outstanding international reputation and the Higher Education sector is an area where the UK is a genuine world leader. It’s vital that we capitalise on these strengths with a stronger focus on teaching quality. At this event you will learn about very latest initiatives across current higher education policy, including the Teaching Excellence Framework, and updates on the Green Paper, Quality Assessment Review and the future regulatory landscape
Learn and debate how the TEF reforms will impact on the higher education landscape, widening student choice, participation and social mobility, and driving teaching excellence. Teaching Excellence Framework: Raising Quality Standards will give you a clear understanding of the future direction of higher education reform, the critical planning institutions need to have in place during transition and how recommendations can be best achieved.
