The University of Lincoln’s Students’ Union is asking students to share how they think teaching excellence should be measured at universities – with a £50 Amazon voucher going to one lucky person who completes their Teaching Experience survey.
The study is in response to the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) scheme – a system which gives institutions a gold, silver or bronze score for the quality of its teaching.
The latest ratings, published in June, gave the University of Lincoln ‘gold’ status – making it one of 59 universities to achieve the highest award.
However, the TEF has also come under fire by students, after proposals to link it with increased tuition fees. The plans have since been postponed until 2020, following an independent review.
The Teaching Excellence Survey, which sees Students’ Unions from across the UK join forces with research company Trendence, takes less than 10 minutes to complete online.Tweet
