Four of our wisest wonks – Smita Jamdar, Vicky Gunn, Johnny Rich, and Ant Bagshaw – answered the call to outline their AlterniTEF. Is there a better way to do teaching and student experience accountability for universities than TEF?
Whilst it is unlikely to outlive external examining, will TEF last as long as Audit and HE Review? Or will it have as short a half-life as TQA and Subject Review? Paul Greatrix takes us through a history of quality assurance and assessment in universities.
Some in the sector have claimed that TEF could harm UK universities’ international reputations. Nona Buckley-Irvine looks at those institutions which have the most to gain and lose from their outcomes.
London’s non-specialist universities have struggled in TEF, and could have done even worse were it not for the panel’s discretion. Nona Buckley-Irvine asks why students seem to have a much poorer experience in the capital.
Which universities managed to excel at both the Teaching Excellence Framework and the Research Excellence Framework? David Morris revisits the theme of his first ever Wonkhe blog with a cool visualisation of the available data.
If we really need to measure excellence in the higher education sector, then we really should start with TEF Gold universities’ varied and bizarre ways of celebrating their achievements. We present the Wonkhe Outstanding Excellence Framework.
