Promoting teaching: Benchmarking guide

As the sector adjusts to higher levels of student participation increased demand for online delivery and a focus on greater accountability the teaching function of both ‘teaching-focused’ academics and ‘teaching and research’ academics is generating increased discussion (see Promoting teaching: making evidence count). Many universities are now at a stage of seeking to clarify their expectations for teaching performance and to articulate how teaching excellence is rewarded at all academic levels and for all types of academic careers.

This guide is designed to assist in the process of review and improvement of academic promotion aligned to institutional goals and best practice in the higher education (HE) sector by assisting HE providers to use the Promoting teaching: good practice benchmarks to carry out a benchmarking project on all aspects of recognition of teaching achievements in academic promotion.
