Publication ‘Improving University Reward for Teaching; a Roadmap for Change’ available

At the Royal Academy of Engineering (London) Ruth Graham presented the 'Roadmap for Change' with respect to improving university reward for teaching on 13 & 14 May. This topic is high on the agenda of Dutch Higher Education (4TU, VSNU & Ministry of Education) with a new NL-wide strategy to be presented in September. Besides the 4TU four more Dutch universities were represented in this event discussing next steps among university leaders and experts from 29 different countries. Overall outcomes of a Teacher Culture Survey with 8000+ academics participated showed clear commitment to change from academics with expectations being high. Reports per participating university (including 4 TU’s) will become available in June. The Roadmap was commissioned by 4TU.CEE.

About the Roadmap

Aimed at universities considering making changes to the way they recognise and reward teaching achievement, the Roadmap for Change is designed to help institutions avoid the pitfalls often associated with such reforms and to optimise the chances of a successful and sustainable change. The Roadmap offers insight into how the process of reform might be planned and implemented. It draws on the experiences of universities that have engaged in changing institutional support and reward systems for teaching achievement, and is informed by in-depth interviews with individuals who played a key role in designing and delivering institutional reform at these universities. Based on these expert views, the Roadmap identifies strategies associated with successful changes to university systems for recognising and rewarding teaching.
