Teaching Excellence Recognition

All four TU’s have decided on further recognition of teaching excellence. 4TU.CEE therefore engaged in two international studies by Ruth Graham. Besides the Teaching Cultures Survey, a ‘Roadmap for Change’study identified the next steps that should be made after decision making. Both best practises and failures from an international group of universities were analysed with those involved. Outcomes show that senior management support, consultation, a HR framework and building of engagement are important. Also the flexibility to adjust the original plans for optimal fit in the own university setting is of importance. Lack of momentum can be a serious failing factor. In the next newsletter we will report on the Teaching Culture Survey which will give us a baseline of where we stand now while enabling a progress check in the future.
