Teaching Excellence Framework

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary



The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) is a mechanism for measuring the quality of teaching in higher education institutions in England, although institutions in other part of the UK can also opt into the TEF if they choose. All higher education providers, including further education colleges and private institutions, can take part in the TEF.
This entry discusses why the TEF was introduced, how it has been implemented, how the TEF assesses teaching excellence, and criticisms of the TEF.
