Teaching and HE

In the UK, lecturers are encouraged to undertake a period of learning and training about lecturing, teaching in general and course design. As part of my job starting in 2011 I have been undertaking an ongoing course in student learning, accredited by the UK Higher Education Academy. Such qualifications are heavily recommended by government and are now being seen as an important element in maintaining student quality. However, although I have undertaken this training, there is little opportunity to reflect upon the wider political system this promotes. 

Other blogs and academics are more deeply engaged with the political debate around Higher Education in the UK, and these blogs are linked on the blogroll. This blog attempts to focus more on the day to day consequences of these debates.
