Higher education professor Paul Ashwin sets out three muddles in the design of the TEF as set out in the Green Paper, which will undermine some of the good aspects of what the policy is trying to achieve.
I am a Professor of Higher Education and my research interests are focused on the relations between teaching-learning and knowledge-curriculum practices in higher education. I am also interested in the relations between these practices and higher education policies as well as the relations between theories and methods in research into higher education. The kinds of questions that I explore in this research include: What counts as high quality teaching and learning in higher education? How is this positioned in policies and practices? How do we research and theorise these competing notions of quality?
