The Professional Standards Framework
The Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning in HE (PSF) has been underpinning both development and professional recognition since its introduction in 2004. Previously reviewed in 2011, the current version of the PSF is being used to support educational development in the broadest range of contexts; from Manchester to Muscat; from Bangkok to Brisbane; clinical education to college-based HE; and for curriculum reform and culture change – the PSF is supporting individuals and institutions to achieve their teaching and learning ambitions in increasingly diverse and global contexts.
Advance HE has facilitated a sector-led review of the PSF to build on its strengths while ensuring it reflects the dimensions of contemporary practice and is best placed to continue to support success. Over the course of 2022, an independent sector-led Steering Group has overseen an evidence-based review, with a range of consultation events giving colleagues across the world a chance to contribute their views and shape the updated framework to make it fit for the future of global higher education.
On behalf of the sector, Advance HE is delighted to launch the new PSF via a virtual event at 08:00 - 09:00 (GMT) on 31 January 2023. We warmly invite you to join us as we celebrate this important development and to hear from invited speakers, drawn from our global higher education community, about the key areas of change that ensure the framework's relevance to the many contexts that higher education operates within now and for the future.
