Knowledge Factory EPD91
Professional Development Needs and Recognised Teaching Standards for Higher Education Professionals
In spite of higher education's involvement in teacher training, university lecturers themselves may not have formal qualifications beyond their advanced degrees. In this Knowledge Factory we will look at the rationale behind the UKPSF (UK Professional Standards Framework), the benefits it generates and how it can be applied in specific higher education contexts. Engage in hands-on activities during this Knowledge Factory and identify which steps to take to put such a scheme in place in your institution.
