Advancing Teaching has launched a new project to map the global movement for change to the reward of university teaching and showcase best practice solutions from across the world. The research is co-funded by a consortium of universities from across the world with a particular interest in the reward and recognition of university teaching: Aalborg University, Denmark; King's College London , UK; KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden; London School of Economics (LSE), UK; Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway, Utrecht University, Netherlands; and the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (PUC, Chile. The outputs will be made available as open access resources in late 2024, with printed copies of the report prepared for collaborators, case study institutions and those participating in the 2024 Advancing Teaching meeting. Further details are given here.
A new Advancing Teaching study will be launched in coming weeks to map global practice in the reward and recognition of university teaching. It is designed to, firstly, turn a spotlight on the scale and ambition of the changes underway worldwide (as a lever to help others lobby for reform within their own universities) and, secondly, identify and explore global best practices (offering a resource bank for universities already planning or engaged in reform). Further details will be posted here soon.
Findings from the Teaching Cultures Survey 2022 are now available on the project website here: www.teachingcultures.com/Findings/
The Teaching Cultures Survey 2022 is the second of three cross-sectional surveys designed to capture and track the culture and status of teaching within universities worldwide. The large majority of universities participating in the survey are engaged in systemic changes to academic career pathways and/or the ways in which achievements in university teaching are rewarded. The survey allows them to explore the impact of these structural changes on the experiences and perspectives of their academic communities and compare progress with peer institutions worldwide. This snap-shot report highlights consolidated findings from the 16 universities across eight countries that participated in the Teaching Cultures Survey 2022.
Preparations are now underway for the Teaching Cultures Survey 2022, in which around 25 universities from across the world are expected to participate. The survey responses will be collected between February and May 2022 on the various campuses, with the findings available from July 2022. If any new universities are interested to take part, please get in touch via the survey contacts page.
