UA/HEA workshop: What is research-led teaching and why is it important?

Church House Conference Centre, Westminster, London

The Teaching Excellence Framework is intended to provide a mechanism to measure and reward excellent teaching.  It recognises that this can take many different forms – but one that is highlighted as an area where a university might seek a particular commendation is research-led teaching.

Although many universities seek to integrate their research and teaching – and see this as the heart of their teaching excellence – the concept is not as well understood as it could be.

Proposed changes to the HE landscape will see funding and responsibility for research and teaching being held by different organisations reporting to separate government departments.

You are invited to a University Alliance and Higher Education Academy interactive workshop exploring what research-led teaching looks like across different disciplines and how it benefits employers and students. It aims to:

  • Explore what research-led teaching looks like across different disciplines and how it can benefit employers and students.
  • Share best practice and case studies in research-led teaching among senior practitioners and lead the HE sector as a whole in developing a better understanding of research-led teaching.
  • Demonstrate the extent and value of research-led teaching.

Speakers will include senior officials from BEIS, DfE and HEFCE.  Colleagues from a range of universities will also share their experience and some examples of best practice.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please RSVP by Friday 2 September 2016
