HEA four year strategic plan for teaching
Strategic priorities over the next four years include:
• to inspire and support effective practice in learning and teaching;
• to recognise, reward and accredit excellent teaching;
• to influence policy, future thinking and change;
• to develop an effective, sustainable organisation that is relevant to, and valued by, higher education.
All good intentions but lets wait and see how they are implemented. This should hopefully make lecturers lives better as well as the improving student experience. The main problem is too much work and little recognition. so as long as these concerns are reasonably addressed I am all for the new plan. Staff should be valued for their excellent teaching in the same way that they can be venerated for excellent research, whether this new strategy will do enough, we shall see.
